Thanks to generous help from volunteers and donors, Harmony Adoptions is making exciting progress towards revitalizing historic Camp Montvale in Blount County. When work is completed the camp will become the Harmony Family Center at Montvale, a counseling resource for families with newly adopted children.
Work on the camp has generated media interest, including a front page article by the Knoxville News Sentinel about significant new donations and volunteer achievements.
Pam Wolf, CEO of Harmony Adoptions, says that volunteers have donated 3,500 hours at the camp since May 2011 doing construction, cutting grass, taking trees down, cleaning and reclaiming land. In addition, two notable local foundations have contributed a combined $150,000 towards the development of programming and counseling services for the camp.
