HALO is more than just a bed and a meal.
The Homeless Assistance Leadership Organization is a proven pathway to self-sufficiency for those experiencing homelessness.

Since opening in 2005, HALO has helped over 2,000 adults return to stable housing with enough income and savings to support themselves.

Statement of Need

Homelessness is a very real issue for Racine County. Racine continues to have the highest unemployment rate and second highest child homelessness rate among Wisconsin cities. Last year, the Racine Unified School District identified 734 students as homeless.

Last year, HALO served 797 individuals, including 193 children, more than half under the age of six.

The Key to HALO’s Success is Individualized Support

HALO Case Managers help individuals experiencing homelessness to overcome barriers, develop goals and foster human connections for a successful transition from homelessness to independent living. 

Last year, 552 adults at HALO enrolled in our Journey to Self-sufficiency program. Of these participants, 230 moved into stable housing with enough income and savings to support themselves. 

Additionally, 82% showed measurable progress in one or more areas of need and 55% moved from unemployed to having obtained a living-wage job.

A Focus on Children

Through HALO’s school readiness program and mandatory tutoring sessions, HALO has consistently proven that children living in shelter can strive in school and in life.

HALO ensures that 100% of the children in our Family Program receive medical exams complete with vision, hearing and dental screenings and updated immunizations.

✓  Of the school-aged children staying at HALO, 98% maintain regular school attendance and 84% have shown improved grades.

Thank you for putting accountability into our actions and faith in our mission.
