Description: Harmony House is a transitional housing program with the primary goal of helping families move from homelessness to permanent housing and from dependency to self- sufficiency.  With the capacity to house 102 families in individual apartment units and host of on-site social services,  Harmony House provides much more than a shelter.  It offers stability to families facing seemly insurmountable barriers and enables them to restore their lives.

Residents are encouraged—and in many cases are required—to take advantage of the childcare, job training and other resources available to them through the New Community network.
The length of stay at Harmony House is determined by individual circumstances but the average stay ranges from six to nine months.
