Ten Years

Read a Letter from HALO's founding director:

"Twelve years ago, a group of community minded individuals came together to discuss the issues of homelessness in Racine County. 

HALO was truly a community vision and a community effort. HALO became and still is the organization that our community envisioned.
The miracles continue to happen, only now they are the miracles of changing peoples’ lives! Congratulations HALO on 10 years of success in the Racine community!" 

Cheryl Buckley , Founding Director of HALO 2005-2009

Journey to Self-Sufficiency

This agency receives funding from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and/or the State of Wisconsin Department of Commerce to provide services for homeless and near homeless individuals and their families. A requirement of this funding is that this agency participates in the Wisconsin Homeless Management Information System. This system collects basic information about clients receiving services from this agency. This requirement was enacted in order to get a more accurate count of individuals and families who are homeless and to identify the need for different services.

HALO, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) qualified organization.

HALO has been selected as a beneficiary of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino's community program - Heart of Canal Street this year.  Half of each $3 Canal Street Bingo game played goes to the Heart of Canal Street fund, which totaled more than $1 million last year!
