HELP USA (www.helpusa.org) is one of the nation’s largest homeless services providers and low-income housing developers serving at-risk populations including families, veterans, survivors of domestic violence and other people facing homelessness. Our mission is to provide housing and supportive services that enable the homeless and people in need to become and remain self-reliant. We see housing as the beginning of a community-building effort, not the end-point. And we envision a world where safe and stable housing is a starting point for everyone.
Since opening our first homeless shelter in New York in 1986, HELP USA has grown into a national organization that develops and manages permanent supportive housing, operates shelters, and runs homeless prevention programs. With an annual operating budget over $125 million, we currently serve nearly 25,000 people per year and provide 4,000 units of permanent and transitional housing in over 50 programs and residences across six states. As part of our 30-year commitment to families and individuals in need of safe, stable homes, we continue to grow on a steady trajectory.
