Our Mission
Our Mission at Harmony House is to provide emergency shelter, crisis intervention, education and advocacy for adults and children who are victims of domestic violence. We raise awareness in the community through education and advocacy. We provide assistance through personal education and training to help victims break the cycle of domestic violence and regain control of their lives.

Our History
During 2004, approximately 1000 calls were placed to local law enforcement regarding domestic violence in Troup County. The need for a shelter for those affected by domestic violence became increasing apparent. Without an appropriate shelter, these victims and their children were without a safe housing alternative. A task force, comprised of members from the judicial system, local law enforcement and social services agencies, was formed. From their guidance, an initial Board of Directors representing the diversity of the LaGrange community was formed. Under this direction, an aggressive development campaign began to fund Harmony House. Support was given by the Callaway Foundation, the United Way of West Georgia, and Charter Bank. Additional financial support came from local churches, businesses and individuals.

In February 2005, Harmony House was awarded its 501(c)3 non-profit status. The shelter opened after much hard work on October 3, 2005. Harmony House received its full certification from the Department of Human Services Domestic Violence Unit in the fall of 2008.

Our services include 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 planning, counseling, legal assistance, limited transportation, childcare, and training opportunities for survivor self sufficiency.
