While Project Harmony continues to monitor updates on the Covid-19 pandemic, we are still planning an in-person luncheon and conference. The safety and well-being of our presenters, attendees, and volunteers is of the upmost importance to us and we will continue to follow the CDC and Douglas County Health guidelines.
The cycle of abuse does not have to continue, but we can’t end it alone. Anyone has the power to be someone who makes our community a safe place for all children.
