How You Can Help

Your generosity helps us make this life-changing program available to children and families in our community

Hope and Healing for Kids from Hard Places

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 HALO Project Builds Trust and Creates Loving Family Connections

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 the following HALO sessions: 

Ages 3y-7y:
January 8 – March 18, 2024 (break week February 12th) at Life Church in Macungie

Ages 3-7:

New HALO Teen Programs

We offer two programs to address the specific needs of children ages 13-18 who have experienced trauma. 

Our Making Sense of Your Worth program includes 8 weeks of small group sessions between teens and a TBRI® trained clinician, helping teens process their past in a supportive, safe group environment.

Our HALO Project for Teens 10-week program is an more intensive option and provides teen group sessions as well as individual family therapy sessions and Trauma Education Classes for parents, plus booster sessions.

Both of these programs are focused 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.

Parent Feedback on The HALO Project

“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.”
