Each one of our USS centers is a “home away from home” to seafarers across the globe.
United Seamen’s Service meets the needs of seafarers through its six port community centers worldwide. These centers provide programs specially tailored to create a safe haven for seafarers.
Here, off-duty seafarers can relax and attend to their many concrete personal needs. In addition, the USS center director acts as an advisor, providing supportive counseling, information and referrals to the seafarer in crisis. Outreach is also offered through programs such as ship, hospital, and detention visiting.
