Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $100,000)

Helping and Lending Outreach Support (HALOS) connects faith-based and civic organizations, businesses, and caring individuals with the needs of treatment and foster care youth through the Charleston County Department of Social Services. HALOS and it's partners address some of the tangible and ongoing needs of victims, assisting DSS caseworkers with overcoming the constraints of the DSS budget. Through this cooperative agreement, HALOS will improve access to faith-based and community resources for abused and neglected youth by conducting a community needs assessment, evaluating their services and developing an outcome based measurement framework, and developing a program model for replication and sustainability of HALOS. nca/ncf
