Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

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.
