Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Cancer

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)

Gardner's House is a non organization that helps people who is affected with cancer.This organization also helps people who are struggling, with their rent, food, light, gas. Whats so different with this organization is they call or come to see how you are doing.They ask how can they help .And you just dont here from them one time, always someone checking on you.GhI help me out by going to their support group, helping with gas, rent, and letting me know about other programs , which can benefit. Like a food program i am in.If it weren't for GhI, I would be lost or out on the street.I thank god for this organization and the founder who is Maggie Gardner. She is a blessing to me.

My name is Cheryl E. I had the pleasure of meeting Maggie Gardner 2 years ago when I was diagnosed with colon cancer. My pastor told me about her and gave me her contact details. The very first time I met her I knew that there's something special about her, she's warm and easy to talk to. Maggie has stretched out her hands to people of all color and walks of life, she doesn't show any preference where you're from and what situation you're in she's there for you! I'm proud to say it's a pleasure going to Gardner's house for the monthly meetings and meeting new people. Maggie continue the marvelous work that you're doing.

Gardner’s House is a staple in the Hartford Community helping individuals who are fighting cancer stand on their feet by providing financial, emotional and informational support when they needed it the most.
In 2016 I have personally witness Gardner’s House helped three cancer patients from being evicted for nonpayment of rent. If it wasn’t for Gardners’ house these individuals and their families would be living in a shelter. Please help Gardner’s House with your financial support so they can do more to help cancer patients and their families win the battle against cancer.

The place that Maggie dwells is full of love for cancer patients and their families. I have witness Maggie’s determination and persistence in bringing awareness to the plight of cancer patients and their families through the work of Gardners’s House Inc. I have witness Maggies’s determination traveling to New York and Washington DC, in an attempt to bring awareness to her organization and raise funds to provide better services to cancer patients and their families. The innocence in her work awakened the charitable spirit in me and compels me to support her cause. Maggie is one of the most forever- giving person I have ever met. I enjoy being in the space she dwells.

Gardner's House Inc is the only organization in the community that is really supporting families affected by all types of cancer with basic needs, there are so many organizations telling us they have support, but when families go for help they set the bar so high the families are not qualify for assistance. The middle class families cannot get help if they owned a house or a good car, or have a spouse working, they have to fall below the poverty level first and then the government will step in. Gardner's House is trying to prevent families from fall below the poverty level while they are facing cancer. Pleas support this unique organization, the funds raise go directly to help families with cancer. Thank you

My Name is Patricia L. As a volunteer with Maggie Gardner which is the President & CEO of Gardner's House. I have the pleasure of meeting all these wonderful young ladies/ Families struggling with their traumatic effects of cancers, not getting enough support or assistance from any others organization. I see for myself first hand on how Maggie Gardner is fighting so hard to help these young ladies, gentlemen & Families with limited funding & also managing the 211 Calls, although Maggie Gardner continue to face all these difficulty. Maggie continue strive to find ways of making a different for the survivors & Families. My sincere gratitude go out to Maggie Gardner. Job well done.

I have worked with this organization on several occasions.."Pop-Up Health" Booth, Merchant Outreach, Free Ultra sound Campaign, Holiday Party, Pretty In Pink Ball. Gardners House reaches out to those in the community for moral, emotional and financial support. Gardner's house is a resource for those looking for assistance, who have been turned away by larger agencies. Gardner's House...fuel for the soul.
