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)

As a cancer survivor my self, I do understand the need for support services and basic need for people affected by cancer. The people in the Hartford and surrounding area are in great need of an organization like Gardner's House Inc, there are so many young women who are being diagnose with cancer and have know one to turn to on their level, some have died and leave young children behind. Thank God for a place such as Gardner's House Inc, who welcome every one who are affected by cancer know matter what type of cancer.
They all are affected in the same way. I am so proud of the organization for standing up on behalf of those who can not stand up for them self.
I am praying that more people support GHI so more people can be helped.

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.

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 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

This none profit has been a big help for Gardner House. IT really help us with our basic needs.So grateful to have this orangization.They help us to get, the things that we need. Because families don't have money and no transportation to get back and fourth to find these resources. If Garnder House did not have this, we would be in bad shape. Thank You for being a part of Gardner House. God Bless !!

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.

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.
