Mission Statement

Through the development of quality housing with support services, including job training and placement programs, HELP USA strives to enable its residents to become independent and productive citizens. HELP USA breaks the cycle of dependency by addressing its underlying causes in a way which respects the dignity of those we serve -- by helping them to help themselves.
