Rating: 4.87 stars   47 reviews

Issues: Cancer

Location: P.O Box 4188 Hartford CT 06147 USA

Mission: Gardner’s House is a place for cancer survivors and their families to go for Respite, a place to help them relieve some stress, for children to get counseling in private, but most of all to help those who are dying in silence. To fill the void that is left by this disease, a home away from home, a place of peace and quiet, a safe Haven, an oasis in the desert for survivors and family, a place to heal body soul and mind and to get away from the hospital and hospice atmosphere as far as possible. To help with recuperation, it will be a positive caring place to be. We will be looking for ways to help those in need financially and emotionally, to get the help they need. (Please! so many are running out of Time)

Gardener's House provides services to all persons affected by cancer. Maggie, founder, is herself a cancer survivor. She works very hard to find and match resources to those in need. She is passionate about what she does and tries to bridge the disparities in services made available to the underserved communities

I am constantly amazed and impressed by the selfless dedication of Ms. Maggie Gardner the director of Gardner's House Inc. Maggie, herself a two-time breast cancer survivor has made it her life's work to assist all who are affected by the dreaded disease with basic needs; an aspect in the fight that is too often overlooked or completely ignored.

I am amazed by dedication and commitment of Gardner’s house members and volunteers in reaching out to cancer patients and their families with encouragement, financial and emotional support in the Hartford Connecticut area. I recently attended Gardner’s House annual pretty n’ Pink fundraising event. I heard the names of those who have lost the battle, and saw the faces of those who are still fighting the battle, I was overwhelm with a sense of “ I need to do more to help Gardner’s House Inc help more cancer patients and their families”. This disease is claiming too many of our brightest people. I wish more people and organizations can contribute to Gardner’s House Inc, so we can celebrate those who have triumph over cancer.

I got to know Maggie when I was looking for an organization to do a fundraiser for. Maggie and Gardner's are well thought off and know in the community because of the tremendous work she does. I was really impressed that she is able to reach so many women and their families basically working on her own. Gardner's house is one of the only places that I know of in the area that speak to unique needs of women of color affected by cancer. Thank you Maggie for all that you do!

Maggie Gardner of Gardner's House is the only one that I know of in our city who provides assistance to not only the cancer survivor, but the family as well. She assists families in finding services to address a variety of basic needs that become dire when a cancer patient loses the ability to provide financial and/or emotional stability for themselves and/or their families. There are times when Ms. Gardner spends her own money to help someone in need. She is one of the most caring, kind and generous souls I have had the pleasure of knowing!

Gardner's House is a wonderful place to meet and interact with people who care about people affected by cancer (and their families). The founder, Maggie Gardner, is gem. She is a down-to-earth, easy to talk to person who works tirelessly towards her goal of helping others. The world needs more people like Ms. Maggie! As a volunteer, I can say that she has truly changed my outlook on life and made me a better person. I highly recommend this organization to anyone looking for a volunteer opportunity or to anyone who's been affected by cancer. Please make a donation if you can...Gardner's House and the people it serves could surely use the help!
