HALO's Angels of Support

HALO's mission of meeting shelter needs, coordinating support services, and preventing homelessness would be impossible without the generous support of our community. 

We are grateful for the following individuals, businesses, and organizations for their continued support.

We've had an outpouring of support from many of our corporate partners. See who they are:

Thank You Melissa Becker for Adopt A Family - You did a stellar job!

This year, under the leadership of our Community Outreach and Volunteer Manager, Melissa Becker, Adopt-A-Family  was able to fulfill the Christmas wishes of all of our shelter clients.  Additionally, our permanent housing and rapid rehousing families participated.  Over 200 individuals - children and adults - were adopted.  While Melissa was the coordinator who did a stellar job, we cannot forget about our donors who are the angels providing the gifts!

                                Prince of Peace Lutheran Sponsors A Christmas Eve Day Party

Prince Of Peace Lutheran once again sponsored HALO's Christmas Eve party for the families and kids at HALO.  They prepared a wonderful lunch and kept everyone entertained with activities.  THANK YOU PRINCE OF PEACE LUTHERAN CHURCH.

The fall semester found UW-M nursing students at HALO on Tuesdays. They interacted with clients, took blood pressure, administered eye chart screenings, and spent time with staff discussing common health issues at the shelter.  The semester ended with a presentation on addiction.  We loved having you and will miss you!     Thank you for coming to HALO..                                                                            

Haas Dinner a Success

The  Haas barbecue was held on April 29, 2017. It was a big success and the event will be moved to Meadowbrook in 2018.  Save the date - May 5, 2018.  Thank you Marie and Ed!

We felt compelled to donate the proceeds from the fundraiser to HALO because we are alarmed by the increasing numbers of homeless, especially those with mental illness, who face danger, and even death, because they are living on the streets. Also, we wholeheartedly embrace HALO's philosophy of ending the cycle of homelessness by providing services such as vocational training, substance abuse counseling, and assistance with affordable housing.
