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 the nonprofit organization for whom this review is written. Gardner's House has proven itself as a valuable organization in the Hartford, Connecticut community. It's effort to assist families survive everyday life issues while in the battle of cancer sets it aside from other organizations. I personally witnessed two individuals apply for assistance to avoid eviction and termination of utilities. Her fight for funding to assist her clients spans to the state and federal levels, individuals and other organizations. They also raise funds at their annual Pretty In Pink Gala, which is their major annual project for fundraising. We, Woman of Hope was the recipient of their 2018 Community Service Award. We, Woman of Hope, have provided Gardner's House with Thanksgiving Baskets for the past seven years. Not only does Gardner's House receive from the community, but it gives back. Maggie Gardner continues as the phenomenal, enthusiastic, leader of Gardner's Howse.

Gardner’s House Inc. is a beacon hope and empowerment in the greater Hartford CT area. At the helm of this organization is Miss Maggie Gardner, a two time breast cancer survivor who used her adversity to create this gift for others who have suffered the same fate as her. The basic needs including food, rent and other valuable resources offered through this organization is welcome relief both for survivors and their families when they have lost resources due to challenges financial and otherwise that can result from a cancer diagnosis. I have witnessed this assistance first hand through friends who have benefitted from the relief provided by Gardner’s House.
Miss Gardner and the volunteers in her organization encapsulate the notion that we can all play our part in giving of ourselves and making a difference in our community.

Gardner House a non profit oranization, who helps families that are affected with cancer. This oranization helps with basic needs. When a person is going through treatments and medication they struggle to keep up with things. Some cant work because of the side effect of medication. They stuggle with bills, food and rent and dont have enough to cover up for the important things. So that's when gardeners house steps in help by trying to get funds and programs, to help those that are suffering. Its a blessing to have maggie gardner co founder of gardners house. Who understands what we go through in our daily lives she is alsl a two time cancer survivor.

Sincerely

My story begins with my second set of breast cancer, it was not easy finding help for basic needs, all I was hearing is sorry you are not qualify, sorry its not the right type of cancer, sorry you dont have HIV Aids etc so we cannot help. Having Gardner's House around we are able to address these problems that continue on to this present time. Gardner's House help every one that come for help, we do our best not to turn any one away, having our community support will help us to help more people affected by cancer, even those who have already received help and are still in need of more support. GHI is a God send to families affected by cancer. PLEASE HELP!!

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.

I have been volunteering at Gardner’s House since 2013 and I am still amazed at how it's founder, Maggie Gardner manages to help so many with so little. It is her personal goal to never have to turn anyone who needs help, away. GHI is increasing it's efforts at fundraising, developing community partnerships and overall development in order to establish the best resources for the community it serves. GHI was recently selected by The Doll's House Foundation and awarded a grant to provided resources for families like help with food, rent, medical, healthy eating and advocacy. GHI still provides assistance to those who need it most. Donate and /or Volunteer TODAY!

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.
