About Project Harmony
Ending Child Abuse Together
Child abuse is a fact in our community, discriminating against no one and impacting thousands of lives each year.
Boldly focused on ending this cycle, Project Harmony has reimagined how communities can come together – leveraging resources to respond to, treat and ultimately prevent child abuse.
Project Harmony’s nationally recognized, collaborative, child-focused approach works to ensure children are not further victimized by the systems intended to protect them. We’ve brought multiple agencies working in these systems together into one place – where they can coordinate and communicate most effectively and tackle child abuse as a team.
This powerful model means that Project Harmony is the resource for child abuse services and training in the Omaha metro area and surrounding communities. We help community members protect and support the most vulnerable among us – restoring courage, facilitating healing and empowering community members to be someone in the life of a child.
