Harmony’s mission is to serve children, families, and communities through counseling, education, and adoption. Since our founding in 1996 Harmony’s focus has been finding forever families for children, domestically, internationally, and through the foster care system. Our work with families often begins at placement and continues throughout the adoption journey.

* Mud (of course!) * Obstacles * Water * New Trails * Hills * and more MUD! *
We are thrilled to announce that we reached our goal of 500 Runners for Mudder’s Day Madness and registration is now closed! Because we are limited by parking we WILL NOT HAVE SIGN UP THE DAY OF THE RACE. Parking will only be available to runners and we ask that runners and volunteers car pool if at all possible. Thanks to all who are supporting our work at Montvale!! We are so very grateful.
PATH TRAINING CONTRACT AWARDED
Harmony Family Center was chosen by the State of Tennessee to provide PATH training for families interested in opening their home to children in the foster care system. The PATH course (Parents As Tender Healers), which is required by the State, is designed to serve as a guide through the complexities of the child welfare system, and to demonstrate the ways the system affects children and families. PATH also provides opportunities for prospective foster, adoptive, and kinship parents to assess their own strengths and resources and to determine whether they are ready to take on the role of becoming a foster parent. For more information please call 844-PATH4TN.
PARENT A CHILD WEBSITE
Harmony Family Center’s website parentachild.org features Tennessee children and youth who, through no fault of their own, have been removed from their families due to abuse, neglect, or trauma. Now in foster care, the greatest wish of all these children and youth is to be part of a forever family.
