About Us

A Look Into Our Community

Welcome to our site! Thank you for visiting.

Our Chosen Lifestyle Family and House, officially came into existence in 2015. A small group of “Turtles” from the Tampa Bay community decided that since we were already a “family” in spirit, we should become one in name. So, together, we became one as House of Harmony.


We see ourselves as survivors. Having shared common experiences of abuse, loss and trauma, our view of the world is different. Our common thread is a strong belief in Tolerance, Personal Growth, Advocacy, Education and Inclusion. We also share a mutual feeling of responsibility to pass on the life skills and lessons we have learned from others and through our own experiences. We believe that even though we may not be blood related, that “Family” includes those who love and respect one another and choose to share their lives in a positive healthy way.


Being united as a Family and House gives us a focused entity that helps us promote our shared core beliefs and values and helps us in our mission to serve the entire community. We hope to bring together other survivors and offer hope and help with healing. Our hope is that through collaboration and understanding, we may cohabitate peacefully rather than increasing the divide between and within our worlds.


You’ll find that although we make it a point not to take ourselves too seriously we are still extremely passionate and committed to each of our lifestyles, families, friends and life journeys.


We hope our Family website will become a valuable resource of information, education and entertainment to those who are part of or curious about our community. Most of all we hope to hear from and meet as many other wonderful people as possible out lurking on the web. Please feel free to contact us at anytime for information, resources or just to connect.


This site was really built with you in mind and we hope you will find it useful.

Your comments or questions are of course welcome.

Thanks!
