Harmony House

As Seasons Change- Harmony House says goodbye and hello…


In 2003, because of necessity, hope, and ambition to rise to any occasion…boom. Harmony House. Out of a closet sized work space located in The King’s Daughters Child Care Center, Leslie Vassilaros would operate as a staff of one. With their support, as well as that of the Junior League of Wheeling, this driven woman would truly bring the Ohio Valley a service that the children of this community so desperately deserved. Eventually, location of “the House” would move to the current home at OVMC’s South Tower. Within a very short time, Harmony House secured community supports, grant funding, national accreditation, well sponsored fundraiser events and became well known for their no nonsense, no cost, all child focused approach on services. By 2011… boom. Harmony House would open doors to a second location in St. Clairsville (Belmont County), Ohio. This, her final year at the helm, has been her most successful to date, raising the most funds on record at each of the three fundraisers. Leslie is a proud parent, a sincere and thoughtful wife, a caring member of her family and our – each and every staff that is part of Harmony House – families. We are truly indebted to you for being our leader, our support, our mother, our best friend, – our hope. You have done it all. We offer our best wishes to you on your next grand chapter, thank you Leslie.

Thank you most.

With the changing of seasons for Harmony House, this next chapter, we are proud to announce our newest addition. As of December 1, 2016 Debra Laughlin Hawkins will be the new Executive Director of Harmony House. We are very excited to have you in the House and we look forward for all the days to come. We will let you “get to know” Debra more in the upcoming weeks…
