ABOUT
HARMONY, HOPE & HEALING

About

MISSION & HISTORY.

Harmony, Hope & Healing provides welcoming spaces for people experiencing trauma and isolation to heal through creative self-expression, music and the arts.

 

We serve adults and families in the Chicagoland area and beyond that are experiencing homelessness, addiction, incarceration, and isolation. Harmony, Hope & Healing is led by executive director Amanda Longe-Asque, who is a former participant herself.

 

Since becoming a nonprofit in 2003, Harmony, Hope & Healing has served over 11,000 individuals. The organization began as a single program for women in recovery and their children that aimed to expose participants to a variety of new musical learning experiences. Program staff noted the residents were better equipped to manage their stress and anger, were less depressed, and exhibited increased self-esteem. Now, Harmony, Hope & Healing facilitators lead music and wellness activities that encourage participants to take creative risks in a safe and supportive environment. We use art as a vehicle to contribute to an improved quality of life for participants and encourage them to play a more active role within their communities.

THE BUILDING BLOCKS.
