Our pay it forward, C5BDI giveback continues! Our team recently committed resources and funding to support Halos. Thank you very much to Melaina Murray from our team for recommending such an outstanding cause. Halos’ mission is to promote safe and nurturing homes for children in kinship care — where a child is being raised by loved ones when their parents are unable to do so.

In 1997, child psychiatrist and pediatrician Dr. Eve Spratt founded HALOS. Dr. Spratt wanted to provide summer camp, extra-curricular activities, birthday parties, and other parts of childhood she saw lacking in the lives of many children placed in foster care in Charleston County.
Over time, HALOS staff recognized that many more children are placed in the home of a relative rather than in foster care and that these kinship caregivers were not given the same resources as foster parents. In 2007, HALOS began to focus on helping kinship families in the tri-county area. As the first nonprofit of its kind in South Carolina, HALOS is paving the way for children to succeed with the support of their kinship families.
Research has proven that staying with a relative or close family friend dramatically increases a child’s ability to succeed. Your support makes that possible. By coming alongside these families, you empower kinship caregivers and help children thrive!
