HALO provides housing, education and healing to youth in the greatest need. Our goal is to empower youth to become contributing members of their communities. HALO successfully enables youth to exploit its full potential by granting scholarships for Universities. This results in noticeable changes in the attitudes of entire communities: HALO's scholarship recipients become role models. They represent a tangible opportunity to break the cycle and achieve individual dreams.
HALO supports communities and youth in the greatest need. Each communities' needs differ, based on issues relating to severe poverty, abuse, neglect, and family displacement. HALO strives to meet the needs of the youth living in dire circumstances, empowering them to become contributing members of their community.
By bringing youth in the greatest need into HALO homes, HALO can meet their basic needs while giving them the tools required for a bright future. Basic needs include food, clean water, clothing, shelter, education and caretakers. In addition to meeting basic needs, HALO provides future-focused programming including higher education and art therapy.
Youth who are supported by HALO have limited to no options for support prior to joining HALO programming, and HALO serves as a long-term family for these youth. HALO maintains constant support until the youth have received all of the necessary support and tools to return to their communities as self-sustaining adults.
