History of HALO

History of HALO

In 2004, the Center of Hope was started as an outreach ministry of Oak Ridge Baptist Church.  This ministry was designed to help meet the needs of the homeless and hurting in the tri-county area.

In 2007 due to overwhelming growth, The Center of Hope changed it's name to: 
Hope And Life Outreach (HALO) and became a separate 501 (c) (3) organization.

We are now a non-denominational, Christ-centered, faith based ministry that provides programs and services for those in need.  Through partnering with area churches, business and organizations in our community, we reach out to those in need by offering food, clothing, shelter, support and presenting the message of HOPE through Jesus Christ.

Who we are:

HALO is a Christ-centered, faith based 501 (c) (3) non profit dedicated to serving the homeless in our community.
