Our Story

In the dark hours of April 16th, 2022, a tragedy struck that would change one family's life forever. Haley, a vibrant 21-year-old, lost her life in a roadside accident, prompting her grieving mother, Brook Stealey, to transform her pain into a powerful force for change.

Out of this heart-wrenching loss emerged Haley's Light, a nonprofit organization committed to raising awareness about highway safety and providing crucial information on how to navigate the challenging situation when a vehicle becomes disabled. The mission is clear: to spare other families the pain and grief associated with accidents by empowering them with knowledge and tools.

"Haley's Light: Illuminating Lives and Inspiring Change"

In a recent incident that highlights the real impact of Haley's Light, a local woman became the beacon of help for a stranded gentleman pulling his boat on a dark, unlit road. The man found himself in a precarious situation as oncoming cars failed to notice his boat protruding into the road. Desperate for visibility, he stood in the road, flashing a small flashlight at passing cars to prevent a potential collision.

A local woman, equipped with a Haley's Light in her car, noticed the unfolding situation. Recognizing the potential danger, she pulled over and approached the distressed gentleman. Offering a simple yet powerful solution, she asked if he would like to use her safety light—the very same Haley's Light designed to enhance visibility in such situations.

Grateful for the offer, the man attached the Haley's Light to his boat. Almost instantly, the road became a safer place as the powerful LED flare illuminated the surroundings, ensuring both the stranded driver and his boat were clearly visible to oncoming traffic. With this small yet impactful intervention, the local woman turned a potentially hazardous situation into a safe resolution, demonstrating the practical significance of Haley's Light.

This incident stands as a testament to the immediate and tangible difference that Haley's Light can make in real-life scenarios, emphasizing the organization's commitment to promoting highway safety and preventing accidents on the road.


Haley, a remarkable soul who graced this world, left an indelible mark on everyone she encountered.
