The SURGE Centers of America objective is to transition homeless persons off the street by offering housing, resources, and trainings in an encouraging and transformative environment. Residents are offered continuing education resources and on campus trainings.

Residents are offered assistance with acquiring jobs. Within the first few days of being on campus, residents are encouraged and assisted with retrieving and obtaining identifiable documents.   After completion of Tier 1 and clearance from Personal Strategic Planner (PSP), a resident may accept employment.
