The Hardy Center is located on the near Eastside of Columbus. It is an organization that serves young people with the mission "to provide inner-city children with the elements they need to become more viable within this society". Peace partners with the E.L Hardy Center for a variety of volunteer opportunities. The Peace community donates and delivers a van full of food once a month for students in the after school program. We offer support in other areas such as Summer Camp, gardening, and tutoring as needed. The Hardy Center is under the direction of Stephen Garland. Steve's passion to instill a love of learning and to guide children to see possibilities is infectious. Peace is privileged to walk alongside him and the children at the Hardy Center.
