KSHB-TV Reported Dec. 12, 2018

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City organization helping homeless and at-risk youth said the need is increasing.

HALO (Helping Art Liberate Orphans) recently started a big effort to help get a roof over more kids' heads. The organization is launching a $6 million project to build a new learning center and housing that can accommodate 24 boys and 24 girls.

Madison, a budding artist with big dreams, was at ReStart's youth homeless shelter when she was introduced to HALO a couple of years ago.

"Honestly, I can say I don't regret any of it because I wouldn't be the person I am now and I wouldn't have the mentality I have now," said Madison, who declined to give her last name.
