What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Interviewing, Therapy & Family Advocacy

HHCAC coordinates child abuse investigations by recording abuse disclosures through forensic interviewing, allowing the child to only have to complete one interview, rather than repeated interviews. HHCAC coordinates an multi-disciplinary team(MDT), including law enforcement, social services and therapists, to advocate for abused children and increase the conviction rate of perpetrators. During the interview process Family Advocates will visit with the non-offending caregiver about resources needed and assist them in accruing them. After the forensic interview the abuse survivor, non-offending caregiver and any siblings will begin therapy sessions with our onsite therapy team.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Harmony Home exists to break the silence and heal the hurt of child abuse. We exist to assist children who are involved in an open child abuse case and allow them the opportunity to tell their story and receive the best care available for their investigative case. To treat children and families with specialized therapy to get them through the trauma of child abuse. We also aim to teach our community the effects of child abuse, how to identify and report child abuse and empower them to do so.

Harmony Home provides the following: a beautiful, child-friendly facility and warm, caring staff for children who have disclosed abuse; a location where agencies involved in the investigation and prosecution of the child abuse case meet to discuss each case keeping the best interest of the children the top priority; a videotaped interview of the child by a highly skilled child forensic interviewer thus reducing the number of times the victim has to repeat the account of their ordeal, and providing evidentiary support in court; free therapy by licensed therapists who specialize in child abuse counseling for the child victim(s), their sibling(s) and their non-offending caregivers; and, victims services coordination, assuring that children and their families receive the support they need in their healing process from community agencies and crime victim compensation provided through the state. Harmony Home Children's Advocacy Center serves children who are 17 and younger and non-offending caregivers. Cases are referred to Harmony Home by law enforcement agencies and/or Child Protective Services. Our client population also includes child witnesses who may have witnessed fatal or violent crimes. We also maintain a prevention program that allows us to educate our community about child abuse.

Harmony Home currently employs a total of 2 forensic interviewers that are highly trained and specialize in interviewing children involved in an open child abuse investigation. We staff 2 full-time therapist certified in Trauma Focused, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TFCBT) that sees children and their families. Our Program Department also staffs two family advocates that work with families to assist with referrals and any other services/assistance needed. Our Prevention Program staffs a full time Prevention Specialist that focus primarily on educating our community and teaching the Steward's of Children Darkness to Light program.

Harmony Home has accomplished great things with our local law enforcement agencies and CPS office and have garnered working relationships that allow us to work closely with them. We are confident that all child abuse cases that meet our criteria are being brought to us for assistance in their investigation. Our prevention program has also trained over 4,000 adults through the Steward's of Children Darkness to Light program within 3 years.
