Located in Odessa, Monahans & Pecos, Texas, Harmony Home has been open as a non-profit Children's Advocacy Center for abused children since 1993. Our purpose is to minimize the trauma of child abuse through multidisciplinary team investigation, prosecution, and treatment.
Harmony Home employs a small group of 19 professionals who strive to provide justice and healing for abused children in 7 counties throughout West Texas. We serve 600+ children every year, each a victim of sexual, physical, or emotional abuse and neglect.
Every child who walks through our doors is greeted by caring staff and volunteers who are devoted to helping them through the nightmare of abuse. Children and their families find the support they deserve at Harmony Home, and most importantly, a place where healing can begin.
We know that we can't fight child abuse alone. Since 2013 we have provided community awareness and prevention throughout the Permian Basin by providing evidence-based training to adults on how to react, respond and report sexual child abuse. In 2019 we were able to start our 360 degree approach in prevention by going into the classrooms and helping children grades Kinder-5th know and understand the importance of spotting red flags, talking to safe adults, the difference between safe and unsafe adults and having no blame, no shame when a child makes an outcry of abuse. This training also focuses on Cyber safety and bullying prevention.
