Volunteering with Halo opened my eyes to a world I knew exsisted, but was unaware of the severity in my own community. Everyone that works there has a passion beyond compare and it shows. Halo not only made an impact in my life, but also in countless lives of the children in Kansas City that they've been able to help.

I choose to volunteer at HALO because of many reasons, but the most important reason being the necessary work they area doing on a daily basis. HALO provides for youth in the greatest need in my own community, as well as internationally. I love that I can see literally the impact HALO has on youth domestically and I love to hear about how they are changing lives for youth abroad. HALO has some of the most dedicated staff and volunteers who truly put everything they have into supporting and helping kids achieve their dreams.

I have volunteered with HALO for 6+ years. I continue to do so because they are true to their cause. With the goal of "helping youth in the greatest need," HALO is discerning about how to spend every dollar. They work hard, and have created a wonderful network of volunteers around the world to support their efforts.

I have worked with this organization for the past 3 years. The team (and I mean team) is passionate about what they do and most volunteered with the organization for years before becoming full or part-time staff. Getting nothing more than passion pay for their dedication, they are operate the organization lean and have strong volunteer support. The greatest strength of HALO is that they are small enough to easily react to challenges and strong enough to overcome them. What they don't have is a lot of corporate and foundation support and very few major donors ($250 and above). At least 60% of Individual contributions are in the range of $5/month to $100/year. I am a volunteer, a donor and a huge fan of the organization and the people who work here.
