Project Harmony to Host Virtual Annual Community Update December 2

Project Harmony (projectharmony.com), one of the nation’s largest Child Advocacy Centers, invites the community to attend their brief Virtual Annual Community Update on Thursday, December 2, at 9 a.m. Registration is online at www.ProjectHarmony.com.

With child abuse cases on the rise and being more complex and severe than ever before, the virtual event will allow attendees to hear the impact their support and partnership has had throughout another unprecedented year and reflect on shared challenges and accomplishments. Significantly more cases have involved child victims of domestic violence, sex trafficking, and children who witness sexual and physical abuse. The pandemic has also taken a major toll on the mental health of countless people within the community. Project Harmony is on track to serve 6,000 children and their families by the end of 2021 with child abuse prevention and response services.

Project Harmony opened its doors in 1996 and grew out of the vision to create a better system of protection for abused and neglected children. They provide a number of services to ensure that each child and family gets the most from those responding to child abuse. Project Harmony has assembled a multidisciplinary team of law enforcement, social services, and medical and referral professionals who work together to protect children across the Omaha metro in Douglas and Sarpy counties, Fremont, and 16 counties in western Iowa.
