Great Hearts Initiatives | Homeless Assistance Leadership Organization (HALO)

Mission

To provide a pathway to self­‐sufficiency for those experiencing homelessness in Racine County.

The Homeless Assistance Leadership Organization offers each person an opportunity to begin their journey from dependency towards self-sufficiency. We understand that each person that enters our shelter program comes with their own dreams, goals, and needs, and it is our goal to help them reach these goals safely.

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, HALO served 700 individuals including 138 children, 58% under the age of six.

Since opening in 2005, HALO has helped over 2,000 adults return to stable housing with enough income and savings to support themselves. From day one, it was HALO intent to not just shelter those in need, but to offer a clear path to self-sufficiency through individualized support.

HALO is one of few homeless shelters in Wisconsin offering Intensive Case Management paired with a comprehensive network of supportive services from 90+ area agencies, available for new intakes 24/7.

Great Hearts Community Recommendations

"I know and have worked with many people at HALO over the last 8 years. They do a great job helping move homeless people to housing options by helping them in anyway they can to over come the issues which have led to their homelessness. Because of funding cuts at the national, state, and local level, they need private donations more than ever." - Robert Beezat
