See how The HALO Project (Healing, Attachment, Loving, Outreach) helps foster and adoptive children and families connect with each other and build loving bonds.
The Salvation Army Foster Care & Adoption Program is proud to offer The HALO Project to support children in foster care and kids who have been adopted and exhibit difficulty with attachment. Recognizing the unique needs of children who have experienced trauma, The HALO Project unites parents, counselors, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, volunteers, and the medical community in a powerful 10-week intensive outpatient treatment that addresses behavioral challenges and helps families connect and thrive.
Our specially trained team of TBRI® practitioners and clinicians will work closely with you and your child to address your individual needs. Our class sizes are small, enabling us to provide your family with personalized, compassionate care.
We are currently accepting applications for our new HALO Project for Teens program which begins October 5, 2020.
We are also accepting applications for upcoming sessions for children ages 3-7 and ages 8-12 at both our Allentown, PA and Harleysville, PA locations, dates to be announced.
Our new HALO Project for Teens program addresses the specific needs of children ages 13-18. It includes 8 weeks of small group sessions between teens and a TBRI® trained clinician, individual family therapy sessions and Trauma Education Classes for parents, plus booster sessions.
HALO focuses on helping teens make sense of their past and build their sense of self-worth. Through the process, the therapist and family work to show each child that they are worthy of being loved and that they can heal from their past.
Through the Trauma Education Classes, parents learn how childhood trauma influences their teen's behaviors and how they can meet their child's needs and grow closer as a family.
We also offer an 8-week HALO Project: Making Sense of Your Worth 8-Week Educational Support Group for Teens.
"I feel like HALO has been the life vest thrown to us as we were about to drown and I wish every family with kids from hard places could get this training!”
"I highly recommend this program to any family feeling frustrated, hopeless and ready to quit. I believe this program gives them the best chance to save their family and bond with their child."
