COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The outreach and enrichment that Harmony Project brings to the city can be seen daily: murals, gardens, school programs and countless other projects.
There is one project that not as many people can see but is directly changing lives. It’s called the Inside/Out Choir at the Ohio Reformatory for Women.
It is a special collaboration with Tapestry that is empowering women inside of the prison through service, song and positive relationships.
“It’s been so important to us because the women see that there are people out there that care. And they know that when they leave, they can gravitate towards people that are going to care about them and support them,” said Annette Dominguez, director of Tapestry.
Each week, the women and volunteers come together as one voice.
“It doesn’t matter what you’ve done to get there. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been there. All that matters is that you have a voice and you’ve found it and you’re using it,” said Dominguez.
