The Hard Places Community exists to see restoration for those who have been traumatized through war, violence, persecution, and loss, as well as those who have been exploited and abused, and to engage in the fight to prevent further trauma from happening to others.

In late 2019 we officially launched our work in Greece. In response to the ongoing refugee crisis, HPC planted in Athens to address the issues of sexual exploitation and abuse among displaced peoples and in the local brothels. We partner with a Greek non-profit who provides living accommodations and restorative care for over a dozen women and their young children.

HPC is currently working on establishing a business model that will provide jobs and independence for the survivors. Through sharing Christ’s heart of compassion in Greece, we believe hurting hearts will heal and lost people will truly find “home.”
