Project Harmony is a child protection center whose mission is “to protect and support children, collaborate with professionals and engage the community to end child abuse and neglect.” Founded in 1996, it has become a national model of public and private collaboration. This relatively small nonprofit organization has established, under one roof, efficient and effective collaboration that is dramatically improving how the Omaha community responds to child abuse.
Project Harmony exists to provide effective, immediate and sensitive support to child abuse victims and their non-offending family members. Medical evaluations, forensic interviews and advocacy services are provided to ensure that each child and family gets the most from those responding to child abuse. A highly child-centered program and facility, Project Harmony has assembled a multidisciplinary team of law enforcement, social services, medical and referral professionals who work together to protect children. This collaborative approach strives to ensure that children are not further victimized by the systems intended to protect them.
