I’m excited to share with you some news that my friend, Rebecca Welsch founder of HALO, informed me of the other day while planning INSPIRE. They’re opening a second location for BOYS in Jefferson City.
HALO is a long-term home for homeless teenage girls in and around our community from the ages of 16-21 years old. These teens do not have a stable, safe place to call home. They move from house to house, couch to couch, night after night until finally, they are no longer welcome at any of these homes. They sleep in shelters, tents, and cars. Some of these girls are pregnant, some are not, some are already mothers with young children, but all of them come to us needing a safe place to live, and lots of love and support. HALO believes every child should have a home.
