Gardner's House Inc
June 7, 2010

There is a great need here in (Hartford one of the poorest city in tha country)/ North east, for support services and basic need, for people who are facing Cancer, i know first hand the devastation it causes to one life, when proper resorces are not in place to assist you to get through these dark times. life as you know it is no more, who can we count on, where do we go, just to stay alive, to stay off the street, to be able to help our children and our families, there is no place, that is a one stop shop for us. We are rejected , we are not qualify for help with basic needs unless we are lying flat on our faces, even tho we have worked and contribute to the system, it punishes us for doing that. This is why Gardner's House Inc was born to bridge the gap between the patient and the person, you cannot treat one and not the other, we are one of the same.

Funds, to help the people in the comunity
