Our Lovely Charities
The mission of Hibiscus Children’s Center is to maintain a safe shelter for children who are abused, abandoned and neglected by providing prevention, early intervention, and advocacy in quality residential, assessment and recovery programs. Every day, Hibiscus provides life-changing services with the support of our incredible community. Hibiscus Children’s Village, our residential program for youth, provides a safe haven and long-term home environment for teens where they receive nurturing, love, guidance and encouragement. Professional Mental Health Therapists provide services to teens, specializing in the treatment of trauma-based disorders, behavioral health, and healing victims of sexual abuse. The youth receive opportunities to enhance their lives and futures through career preparation and training. The Graphic Design Impact Center, generously made possible by an Indian River Impact 100 grant, is an innovative business program that teaches graphic design and printing skills as well as life skills to help youth become successful community members.
H.A.L.O. Rescue was created in 2006 with a mission to create a NO KILL safe haven for abused and abandoned animals. H.A.L.O. believes in a community where there are no more homeless pets and that together we can eliminate the killing of companion animals.
What sets us apart from other shelters is we are Indian River County’s only No Kill animal shelter. This means we do not euthanize for age, space, medical needs, or behavioral issues. Once an animal enters H.A.L.O. we make a pledge to them to provide all physical, emotional, and medical care needed until a forever home is found.
While we primarily deal with Indian River County and our mission is to make Indian River County No Kill we also bring in animals all over the state and even outside of Florida.
HALO saves over 2000 animals each year but our work is not done. In 2016 1,400 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens still lost their lives in Indian River county. With your help, HALO is here to end this because there is a better way. It doesn’t have to happen.
We depend on animals for everything including unconditional love but can they depend on us in return.
