Harmony's mission is to enrich the lives of adults with developmental disabilities through art, music and community
"Harmony touches the most overlooked needs of adults with developmental disabilities, and that is the need to be respected, to have purpose in life, and to be in a validating environment where each person is recognized and their potentials are encouraged. Harmony focuses on the major components of life, which are learning, living, and loving." Ed Hammer, Ph.D. Professor of Pediatrics at Texas Tech Health Science Center at Amarillo, TX.
Harmony conducts daily art and music enrichment sessions that focus on creative self-expression. Participants are included in the community through regular art and music shows where they are given an opportunity to share their talents both artistically and musically by performing as The Sweet Harmony Band.
Harmony also hosts a monthly dance party open to the disability community as well as the monthly Farm to Market Concert Series. Harmony's space is available to rent for events such as birthday parties, CD release parties, concerts, weddings, anniversary parties and other events.
