Community

Sondra Franceil facilitates the Rainbow Harp Choir through the organization:  Peach County Family Connection. The Blue Heron Lake Nature Conservancy (a 501c3 non-profit) is a collaborative member of this group, and the Rainbow of Sound Harp Choir is part of the inner-city mission of the Conservancy.

The Peach County Family Connection has targeted the Tabor Heights community of Fort Valley, Georgia as a community in need of uplifting. The Peach County Family Connection is a state affiliate–most Georgia counties have one – and they are dedicated to improving the life of the community.

The Family Connection is a collaboration among the various non-profit groups in each county.  Each county chooses its own emphasis.  Peach County is focused on child abuse, domestic violence, teen pregnancy, and illiteracy.

Peach County Family connection is a community support group, and also runs an after school program in Tabor Heights. The harp choir is part of the after shool program.
