The Hazel Haley H.A.L.O. (Helping and Learning Opportunities) child enrichment center is a DCF licensed childcare facility established specifically for homeless children whose families are currently residing in our Family Emergency Shelter, Family Living Center and other local shelters.
The Hazel Haley H.A.L.O. staff works to create an atmosphere which benefits the children emotionally, socially and academically. The goal is to provide a safe place for children to learn and grow while their parents work toward a secure future. The Hazel Haley H.A.L.O. facility at The George W. Jenkins Community of Hope has doubled the capacity, from being able to serve 81 to 162 children.

Our after-school program provides a safe place for school-aged children to learn and grow while their parents work.

The tutoring program is a cooperative effort with the Polk County School Board offering tutoring services to area children who are either homeless or at-risk of homelessness. The homeless children who live in the Family Emergency Shelter and Family Living program are transported to and from school every day by The Salvation Army buses.
