Helping Our Communities
Our Non-Profit Partners
Of course, the insurance products and personalized service we provide to thousands of individuals, families and businesses across California is one way we serve our customers. But, we believe in building relationships with our neighbors and giving back to the entire community. So, each year we work with a variety of local organizations making a difference.
That means when you do business with Hardy, your dollars aren’t just protecting your family—they’re also providing help and hope to others.
The Haynes Family of Programs provides specialized treatment and educational services to children with special needs relating to emotional development, autism, Asperger’s Disorder, learning disabilities, neglect and abandonment.
It was founded in October 1946 by LeRoy Haynes, a former chaplain at the Fred Nelles Youth Authority in Whittier, as a way to help many of the troubled boys he served through intervention and treatment in a home-like setting.
The group home facility has grown from its initial 10 residents to six cottages, each housing 12 children. Mental health treatment services are provided to every resident. The Haynes Education Center, a non-public school founded in 1989 as a companion to the group home facility, initially provided schooling to the children of what was formerly LeRoy Boys Home. It has grown to serve not only the children who live on campus but the community as a whole, accepting children (boys and girls) from 14 school districts throughout Southern California.
American Friends of Semonkong Children’s Centre is an endeavor to live out the calling to care for the orphan and those in need. Their mission is to foster partnerships, provide resources and raise awareness for the needs fo the orphans at Semonkong Children’s Centre. Founded in 2006, Semonkong Children’s Centre (SCC) is located in Semonkong, Lesotho, Africa. This orphanage lost 90% of its funding at the end of 2016 due to the loss of financial assistance from its supporting charities. The HIV and AIDS epidemic continues to ravage this area and as a result, many of the children have been left as orphans at SCC. The centre provides a home for up to 60 vulnerable children and orphans, ranging form 0-18 years old.
Hardy Insurance became involved with this organization in the summer of 2017 when Kevin and his son, Brad, went on a missions trip to Lesotho, Africa. Their hearts, especially Kevin’s, broke when they arrive at Semonkong. Once they returned home, Kevin and three of the other dads on the trip founded American Friends of Semonkong Children’s Centre.
Their purpose is helping to fulfill the Great Commission in the power of the Holy Spirit by winning people to faith in Jesus Christ, building them in their faith and sending them to win and build others and helping the body of Christ to do evangelism and discipleship through a variety of creative ways.
They are committed to the centrality of the cross, the truth of the Word, the power of the Holy Spirit and the global scope of the Great Commission.
Cru was originally founded as Campus Crusade for Christ in 1951, when Bill and Vonette Bright began the ministry on the UCLA campus. God gave him a vision portraying the total fulfillment of the Great Commission throughout the world. They are passionate about their part and how they can help others achieve their parts. From the beginning they have sought to be a caring community as well as a community on mission.
Free Wheelchair Mission believes in a world where everyone who needs a wheelchair has one. Our goal is to provide our next million wheelchairs by 2025.
With an estimated 70 million people around the world today in need of a wheelchair without the means to get one, Free Wheelchair Mission endeavors to distribute over 100,000 wheelchairs annually and continues to pursue our goal to distribute our second million wheelchairs by the end of 2025.
Free Wheelchair Mission continues its focus and commitment on becoming a leading provider of mobility in developing nations, but beyond placing recipients in a wheelchair, Free Wheelchair Mission is bringing transformation that opens doors to education, employment opportunities, and community that these individuals only dreamed of before receiving the gift of mobility.
Jeff Abbot, our beneficiary, has worked in Ecuador for many years and has provided over 8,000 wheelchairs for those that need them. Through his service, many are now able to move about and live healthier, happier lives.
Ethnos is the “nations” that Christ referred to when He commanded His followers to “make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19) and “…that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all the nations…” (Luke 24:47). It’s the word from which we get ethnic, and it means people groups.
360 represents the entirety of the globe — all 360 degrees. Our goal is to go wherever in the world is necessary to see a thriving church for every people, not only to focus on one particular type of people group.
360 also represents the full-circle work of a Great Commission ministry. We begin with thriving churches sending believers to an unreached people group, and keep working until there’s a thriving church sending out believers.
Our vision is the same today as it was 75 years ago: A thriving church for every people. As we move forward, we’ll draw from those lessons God has taught us in our 75 years of ministry to pursue new opportunities opening to us. Opportunities to reach a changing world.
We support Michael and Morgan LeBlanc, who will be serving in Papua New Guinea.
