Our Mission at the Coalition for Family Harmony is to provide direct services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault; to educate the community regarding violence against women, children and men; to prevent the cycle of violence.
Since 1976, the Coalition has provided victims of family violence with the means to help them escape their life of abuse – and for over 30 years, we have operated a 24-hour bilingual crisis hotline to enable their first step toward a better life.
As we assisted more and more victims, we realized that we needed to implement a variety of services – essentially, a continuum of care – to optimize their best chance of a permanent, successful transition to an abuse-free existence.
Thus, a primary Coalition focus is not only directly helping the victim but eliminating violence in the home, underscored by our development of a comprehensive range of shelter-based programs for adult victims, parents, and at-risk youth – all of which will help in Building Stronger Families.
The Coalition offers a variety of services to assist survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse, as well as family and friends of those suffering from abuse, and all of our services are offered in English and Spanish.
