Construction Is Underway!

For over 15 years, HALO has built housing programs all over the world, providing the foundation of a family for children without one. In 2017, we opened the HALO Home in Jefferson City, housing up to 48 children. And now it's Kansas City's turn. There are 6,000+ homeless children on any given night in Kansas City, with only 33 beds available at shelters. HALO can be a solution to providing a safe place. HALO is pursuing tax credits, charitable lead trusts, grants, corporate sponsorships, individual and family foundations, and income sources to complete this project.

Construction has begun on this 37 acres of land, located at I-435 South and Blue Parkway in southeast Kansas City. The projected date of completion for this project is Spring of 2024.

    Love Heals

    Everyone can think of that one moment in their life that changed everything. It’s the moment that made you who you are today. For thousands of kids around the world, HALO is that moment. HALO gives them a home in which hope can emerge from hardship. And where drawings about their past unlock dreams about their future. We work wherever kids who have been abused, abandoned, and orphaned, need to feel loved. We work to help one more child spend one less day alone.

    Let's Break The Cycle 

    As we’ve learned with our HALO Jefferson City Home, this rural model allows our children to heal and break the cycle of youth homelessness. By taking our children away from negative influences, they are able to focus on their goals. Since the HALO Jefferson City Home launched, over 84% of our graduates now have steady lives where they have broken the cycle and are contributing members of the community. HALO has built housing programs all over the world. Now, it's Kansas City's turn.
