Welcome to a Safe Place...
No one should live in fear, however too many women and children live in situations where fear is all too common. Physical, mental, and emotional abuse are far more common than many people know. More than 1 in 3 women (35.6%) and more than 1 in 4 men (28.5%) in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime. Additionally about 1 in 4 women and nearly 1 in 7 men in the U.S. have experienced severe physical violence by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetime.
If you are in this situation you need a safe place to turn, a place that can help you on a new path away from abuse.
Harmony House is a state of Georgia certified emergency shelter servicing victims of domestic violence and has been in operation since February, 2005.
We provide around the clock residential shelter and safety to domestic violence female victims and their children. We have a capacity to serve up to 14 residents from the local and surrounding areas. Our major objectives include: safety, counseling, legal assistance, limited transportation, childcare, and training opportunities for survivor self sufficiency.
Our key programs are designed to support residential clients (victims that seek emergency shelter) and outreach clients (victims that do not want or need emergency shelter, but who are in need of program services).
