The Denver HALO Center, a nonprofit organization that serves at-risk youth in the local community, will no longer be associated with The HALO Foundation and will operate as a new entity known as the Heart & Hand Center for Youth and their Families.
Located in the Five Points area of Denver, the Heart & Hand Center will continue to provide warm meals, after school activities and support on week days to underprivileged Denver children, which it has done since 2008.
“As the HALO Denver Center evolved, so have the needs of the Five Points Community,” said Nikki Cady, president and founder. “We decided that our branch needed to focus our efforts at a local level and expand in order to support the families of Denver.”
In addition to providing children with fun, safe and educational programs, the Heart & Hand Center will now also offer assistance to the families of the children who participate in the programs by helping with housing, food, clothing and employment needs as well as connecting them with other nonprofit resources in the community.
“We’re looking forward to focusing more on impacting the daily lives of Denver families and the continued growth under the new name of the Heart & Hand Center,” Cady said.
