The Homeless Assistance Leadership Organization (HALO) is committed to preventing chronic homelessness in Racine County by meeting shelter needs, coordinating supportive services and providing community leadership.
The vision for the Homeless Assistance Leadership Organization (HALO) is that all homeless individuals and families in Racine County will be provided emergency food, clothing, shelter, transitional and permanent housing, and supportive services through a collaborative structure that effectively coordinates services, shares information, increases funding and eliminates duplication and gaps in services.
Our core values influence how we make decisions, interact with program participants and treat each other in the workplace. These core values are Respect, Integrity, Stewardship, and Excellence (RISE).
These core values will help HALO RISE as an excellent organization striving to end homelessness and provide high quality programs and services for the homeless in Racine County.
"John was desperate and suicidal when HALO’s Outreach team found him. After two years in our programs, John has been holding down a part-time job and is just three classes away from completing his degree in Human Services from Gateway Tech College. Thankful for giving him a second chance at life, John returns to HALO on nights and weekends when he is not working to offer his time, support and inspiring story to others coming to the shelter for the first time."
