Karen M. Casolaro, Founder/President
Karen's mission was to take action and help families in need who were experiencing a sudden tragedy or catastrophic event with immediate assistance. By helping neighbors help each other is something she understood as a cancer survivor. From her hard work and strong determination Karen founded Halos for Angel, Inc. To date, Halos For Angels has served over 120 families since its founding in 2010.
Vice President of Fundraising
To be able to help others is what I was born to do. As the Vice President of Halos For Angels, is truly an honorable appointment to uphold. This inspiring “service” opportunity that I am fortunate to extend to others, with HFA, it creates a full “halo” as giving is receiving.
Duty at HFA – serve as an advisor, and Executive Secretary for HFA.
What I love about HFA is their strong commitment to helping others in need in our community. They have the ability to bring people together in times of crisis, bringing love and support. They operate in a positive, welcoming environment to their volunteers, as well as the people they serve, and exude a strong degree of comfort to others.

Frank T. Gizzo Jr.
Duty at HFA – serve as an advisor, and marketing consultant for HFA.
What brought me to HFA was the amazing loving and giving heart of the founder Karen Casolaro. To many people are faced with sudden tragedy today, and HFA is a great organization to help elevate some of those tragedies or at the very least lessen the severity of the tragedy. I have had my fair share of tragedy and didn't have the great blessings of an organization help me the way HFA has helped its many recipients. I am however thankful for HFA because now I too can be a part of helping others along their journey to recovery.
