The Hamels Foundation Partners with Harmony House to Benefit Students

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (May 13, 2013)– The Hamels Foundation recently announced a partnership between The Hamels Foundation and Harmony House, located in Springfield, Missouri to provide an Educational Resource Center within the current shelter facility. The new Educational Resource Center, funded in whole by The Hamels Foundation will feature computer workstations, a library center, and an atmosphere conducive to learning and study for children.

“The Hamels Foundation is excited to announce this partnership with Harmony House”, stated Kelly Anderson Director of Operations for The Hamels Foundation. “Harmony House provides an amazing service to our community and the addition of this Educational Resource Center will provide an amazing space for children to use for their studies during a very difficult time.”

Harmony House Executive Director Rodney Dwyer commented “The Hamels Foundation is dedicated to bringing an end to extreme poverty and hardship endured by lack of educational support.  Their efforts to bring an Educational Resource Center to the children of Harmony House will undoubtedly have a positive impact on those lives by providing a foundation for breaking the cycle of abuse.” 

The Hamels Foundation, started in 2008 by Philladelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels, a 2008 World Series MVP and 3-time MLB All-Star, and his wife Heidi who grew up in Buffalo, MO and graduated from Drury University is dedicated to enriching the lives of children through the power of education by giving them the tools they need to achieve their goals. The Hamels Foundation has raised more than $2 million dollars since its inception in 2008 and much of that money has funded projects and scholarships in Southwest Missouri.  100% of funds raised locally stay in the Ozarks area to benefit education.  

The mission of Harmony House is to provide shelter, advocacy and education to survivors of domestic violence and promote the principle that all individuals have the right to a life free of abuse.

Renovation will begin on Monday, May 20, 2013 with a tentative completion date of June 1, 2013. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be scheduled following completion of the project.  For more information about The Hamels Foundation visit www.thehamelsfoundation.org.
