Our Programs

Our mission is to end youth homelessness by providing supportive housing and job training opportunities to cultivate personal responsibility.


Short-term and Bridge Housing Program

USA’s Short-term and Bridge Housing (“STBH”) program offers transitional-age youth housing for up to nine months. The following three requirements establish eligibility for the STBH program: the youth is between the ages of 18 and 25, the youth is currently experiencing homelessness, the youth has identified as having prodromal symptoms, having qualifying Seriously Emotional Disturbance (SED), or a Seriously Mentally Ill (SMI) diagnosis. Once in the STBH program, the youth is provided a continuum of services such as case management, employment / education workshops, and peer support groups.  Regular attendance at therapeutic services is required.
USA’s ultimate goal is to help every youth successfully connect with community services, progressively work towards independence, and ultimately transition into their own home.
