In 2009, Tressie Seegers started Harmony as a summer camp for people with developmental disabilities in Austin, TX. She recognized a gap between this marginalized population and life-enriching programs. In 2010, she turned the program into a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to enrich the lives of adults with developmental disabilities through art, music and community. Since then, Harmony has touched the lives of hundreds of adults with developmental disabilities, their families and caretakers.
In 2011, Harmony received a seed money grant from A Glimmer of Hope Foundation that enabled Harmony to increase capacity by moving into their current 2000 sq. ft. facility on W. Stassney Ln. in South Austin, TX.
In 2014, A Glimmer of Hope honored Harmony's founder, Tressie Seegers, with the Angel of The Year award pictured below.
In 2021, Harmony partnered with My Favorite Day, PLLC to expand services to include clinical mental health counseling and art therapy to Harmony's clients.
