Welcome New Team Members

The HALO Jefferson City Team has been growing! We have been working tirelessly to ensure our kids get to work with sensational people, and wow, did we find them! We are so impressed with our new team members' impact in their first few weeks and can't wait to continue working alongside them. We asked each of them why they chose HALO, and are proud to share their answers.

Antonette Irvin - Youth Advocate

Antonette is kind and passionate. She is the kind of person everyone wants to talk to, and can make anyone feel comfortable.

When we asked Antonette why she chose HALO, she said, "HALO chose me!!! My passion is always to help heal the hearts of those who don't believe that love exists."

Antonette, we are so glad you're part of the HALO team and can truly see that love is your guiding force!

Brittani Dunbar - Youth Advocate

Brittani is fierce and funny. She makes everything 100% more fun and challenges all our HALO kids to respect themselves and meet their goals. While advocating for a HALO youth, she was called an "adamant mother," and we are so proud of her for that. She sticks up for our kids and believes they are deserving of good things.

When we asked Brittani why she chose HALO, she said, "I chose HALO because I get to interact with young people from all walks of life and help them see that they can be a success story. I can help the young people create a better narrative for themselves and have fun while doing it. HALO is a family in which I am happy to be a part of!"

Brittani, we are grateful for you and your passion!

Bethany Akyerem - Overnight Youth Advocate

Bethany is an incredibly hard worker and a loving mom to her own children and HALO kids alike. She is never one to shy away from a challenge and always has a positive attitude.

When we asked Bethany why she chose HALO, she said, "I chose Halo because of the life-changing work they are doing for young women and their children. These girls need a helping hand into their new big worlds. They need an opportunity to succeed. Halo gives them that by supporting their goals, encouraging growth, and motivating them to be their best. This job is good for your soul."

Bethany, we are proud to have you on the HALO team and love the positive role model you are to our youth!

Maggie Lewis - Part Time Youth Advocate

Maggie is caring beyond measure and so kind. She quickly builds solid relationships and helps anyone she talks to feel genuinely heard.

When we asked Maggie why she chose HALO, she said, "I choose HALO because helping young girls to become the best they can be regardless of any trials they have been through is what God has called me to do."

We see that calling Maggie and are so glad you're part of the HALO team!
