Mission Statement

HALO helps one more child spend one less day alone.


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 more than 1,400 kids around the world, HALO is that moment. At HALO, we give our kids 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 help one more child spend one less day alone. Love heals.

Featured in the Moroccanoil INSPIRED film series, "American Spirit" of CBS Evening News, "Heroes Among Us" and "25 Women Changing the World" of PEOPLE magazine, "The Today Show", and Variety Magazine, HALO provides housing, healing and education to at-risk and homeless children, in other words, love. Each year, HALO serves over 1,400 children and supports 21 homes and programs around the globe. Internationally, HALO supports orphanages and programs in Uganda, Kenya, Mexico, India, Guatemala and Nicaragua. Domestically, HALO has Learning Centers and housing programs in Kansas City, and Jefferson City, Missouri, and art programming in New York and Portland. Join the HALO tribe at

If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity where you feel connected with the organization and the people it helps, HALO is for you! Through volunteering at the HALO Foundation I have been able to experience hands on the work HALO is doing. It means so much when you can directly see your impact on someone's life and HALO offers the opportunity for this. The HALO staff goes above and beyond to make your volunteer experience stress-free and they are people who truly connect with the HALO mission and it's volunteers.

HALO is the BEST organization. They are extremely efficient, value their volunteers/donors, and do amazing work. Hands down one of the greatest things about Kansas City. I love it!

This depends on the interest a person has in working with children and Mostly the people i associate with like working with orphans.

Being an adoptive Mom, I have visited orphanages. Once you have visited an orphanage, there is no way you can turn your back to helping orphans. Once you see their eyes when you don't pick them, once you hear their cries and there is no one to comfort them, once you have to walk away and not bring them all home with you, you can't forget, and the sound of their unanswered cries permeates your soul.

This is a wonderful organization to volunteer for. The people are great to work with and the children are truly inspiring. It's a great way for children [and adults] to become more philanthropic and more involved. Plus the art auction, boardbreakathon and other events are tons of fun!!
