Harmony House provides 24-hour Woman Hotline and temporary refuge for abused women and children, as well as one-stop anti domestic violence services
What They Do
Harmony House is dedicated to helping families affected by domestic violence and aims at building a caring, harmonious and mutually respectful community for “Zero Tolerance to Domestic Violence”.
In 2017-18, 10713 calls were received and more than half of the calls were related to domestic violence, and 1347 calls (12.57%) were received during mid-night. A total of 344 battered women and their children had been admitted to our shelter.
Harmony House was established in 1985 as the first shelter for abused women and their children in Hong Kong. Today, we have developed into a one-stop anti-domestic violence service agency, with a wide range of preventive, therapeutic and developmental programs to help families affected by domestic violence. We also organize community education programs, promote harmonious and multi-disciplinary professionals and advocate for policies and legislations on behalf of the victims of violence, their families and communities.
Harmony House believes that all human beings have right to live with dignity and respect, and to be free from violence, abuse and coercion. Human rights should be preserved in our homes as well as our society. Our vision is to build a harmonious and stable community for “Zero Tolerance to Domestic Violence” and on sound family values of harmony, care, mutual respect and responsibility.
