“I chose HALO because I believe in the mission they have for not just the community here in Jefferson City but also internationally. It’s an honor to be a part of something so impactful and hands-on in helping to create the change the world needs.”
“I have centered my career around working with at-risk/vulnerable children. I chose HALO because I love what they do to support in-need and homeless youth here and abroad. At the HALO Home, it is more than a place for youth to stay, it is a place to feel safe so they can work on personal growth. The work HALO is doing is truly inspiring and I am blessed to be a part of helping young ladies see their potential.”
Donell Burns HALO Jefferson City Boys Program Facilitator
"I want to help guide these young men on the right path, and whatever door the world has closed on them is an opportunity for me to steer them in the right direction."
Justin Somers HALO Jefferson City Boys Program Assistant
"I made so much professional progress and impact with the Boys program during my internship. That I generated a strong attachment for this line of work."
As HALO grows, we love hearing why our team members choose us, and even though no two answers are the same, the sentiments always are.
Whether it's a desire to help kids, develop professional skills, gain experience in the non-profit sector, use art to create healing, or just a passion for doing good, HALO staff enjoy making a difference every day!
