I have known about the amazing work that Nana's House does for many years . I started volunteering in 2018 and I love being apart of such a great organization. The work that Kim Frodge and the entire Volunteer staff do on a daily basis is extraordinary and life changing for so many children. I look forward to continuing to support with my time and with financial contributions.

Nana's House is simply amazing! This Christ centered organization has pulled together our community doing God's work to help children in need. It has been a blessing to watch it grow over the years and open multiple homes where children will feel safe, protected, and loved!
You see my Mom had a dream, God called her to start this mission many years ago. Most would brush off a mission of this magnitude, not my Mom, she and my Dad stepped out in Faith and with God by there side they followed God's calling. Through many years of dedication, hard work, and support from the community and so many Faithful volunteers Nana's House has provided for many children! This organization will always be a blessing to our family and will continue to provide loving homes for children in need for years to come!

I have been volunteering with this organization for 13 years! I remember when it started as a dream planted deep in my heart! I absolutely love the fact that this children's home is 100% volunteers and 100% supported by donations! Together the community is taking care of neglected, abused, needy, or abandoned children! It's old fashion charity! We are called to take care of those that can't take care of themselves! I love the fact that we operate like a normal Christian Family home and have only five children in each home so that the house parents can roll model what it's like to live in a normal family home! I also love the relationships that are built in this organization by volunteering with other people in the community that want to make a difference in the lives of children! Together we are helping to break the cycle of neglect and abuse! I also love how the House Parents love these children as if they are their own! Children feel loved the second they walk in the door!

It's old fashion charity! We are called to take care of those that can't take care of themselves! And the children that are taken care of are newborns to age 11 years old and then of course they are grandfathered in and will be with Nanas Children's Home Inc. until they can be safely reunited with their family or until they are sent to college! I also love the fact that we operate like a normal Christian Family home and have only five children in each home so that the house parents can roll model what it's like to live in a normal family home! As far as I know there is not another children's home in the world that operates the way this children's home does! All volunteers and no state funding! I also love the relationships that are built in this organization by volunteering with other people in the community that want to make a difference in the lives of children!

The experience that I have with this nonprofit organization has been great because I see and I know that everything that is being invested and given to this community is being used for the mission, to give the children that have been abused and neglected a home that is Christ-centered. I have been volunteering with Nana's Childrens Home since 2015.

I have volunteered for Nana's House for the past 7 years. It is a wonderful alternative to the foster care system. The children are in a structured home environment with a Mom and Dad and are exposed to family values.

I have been aware of the amazing work that Nana's House has done in my community over the past several years, but I have only become active with helping further this worth cause for just over a year. It has been a blessing to me to be a part of this vision that seeks to love and care for children in a Christian environment. The difference that Nana's House is making in the lives of Neglected, Abused, Needy or Abandoned children is inspiring. Nana's House is 100 % volunteer run and 100% community supported. They do not receive any government funding. I am proud to be a part of this nonprofit charity organization and I would encourage everyone to get involved. Blessings, Karen

I have been a volunteer with Nanas Children's Home (known as Nana's House) for over 10 years now. I have watched this amazing charity grow and reach goals that seemed almost impossible. All along the way they have never wavered from their mission or broke any promises. Another amazing thing about Nana's House...we are 100% volunteers. There is no payroll. All funds raised are carefully used to ensure that there is no waste and that we are able to maintain the health and welfare of the children in our care. I have seen first hand how Nanas House has positively affected the children in our care, and their families. While we are a small ripple in the pond, what we do to help neglected, abused, needy, or abandoned children does and will continue to make a difference, a difference in the lives of the children and families we help and a difference in the community in which we live. I cannot think of a better way to spend my volunteer time and hours.

I have volunteered with Nana's House for over 9 years now. I have watched this wonderful non-profit blossom and grow into the amazing organization that it is today. Nana's House has grown, but has never strayed from its mission to provide a loving and caring Christian family home to children who are neglected, abused, needy, or abandoned. Truly a charity, 100% of the monies raised goes to the care of the children in some fashion (health, education, food, shelter, etc). There are no paid position as they are 100% volunteer run. I love this organization as I have seen first hand the lives that have been changed because of it. There are so many (too many) children in need and Nana's House is crucial to those in our area. Nana's House hopes to stop the cycle of neglect, abuse, and abandonment by ensuring that the children in our care know they are fervently loved and that they have a purpose in life. Allowing them to live in a happy family home provides them with love and strength to grow into good strong adults and to be role models to their children someday. All of the volunteers, the board members, and the house parents have a heart for this mission and give their all. This is beyond a doubt, a top-notch nonprofit!

NANA's has been the most wonderful place to "work" as a volunteer ever! The others who volunteer enjoy their days there, not only for the benefits given to the supported children we serve, but the atmosphere is so positive, loving and caring to each other and to customers who come in to browse. Every cent earned there goes to caring for the children and keeping the houses going. I love going in to help, and look forward to being there. The purpose of NANA's is what got me to volunteer, but now that we are friends all, it has given us benefits also. It's fun to be there! We love sharing the vision and being able to help.

I have volunteered with NANA'S House for several years. I have seen first hand the awesome work that this organization does to help Neglected, Abused, Needy or Abandoned children. The most amazing thing is that ALL of the people involved in this Organization, from the Director on down to the Thrift Store volunteers are non-salaried. We are all volunteers. That means that every penny that is donated to NANA'S House goes directly to support the children. It is a faith based Organization that provides safe, loving homes to children in need.

No one loves children more than Kim Frodge, the founder of Nana’s Children's Home. She devotes her life to the cause. I love that nobody receives a salary in the organization and it’s completely run on donations. I have volunteered at the Thrift Store almost since the beginning. All the money made there is used to care for the kids in our care.

My wife and I have worked as volunteers at Nanna’s House Thrift Shop since August 2018. We volunteer on Mondays. From that first day, we have been impressed by the quality of the items for sale, and for the professionalism of the volunteer personnel. The true desire of each person involved in their day to day activities is to work to do all they can to help, provide supervised, loving homes, for the abused and abandoned children for which this charity was founded. Many children are being lovingly cared for and it is a joy to be part of this endeavor!

Nana's House loves children! I have only been involved with Nana's House for the past seven months, but I can see the passion that Kim and Eric Frodge have for making a safe and loving home for the children that are in their care.
The Frodge's have built a beautiful community of homes for the children with house parents that take care of them with loving care. The children are well taken care of, educated, loved and protected.
I was totally amazed and awed by the fact that the Nana's House community is supported by Melbourne and the surrounding area with the wonderful donations, time, and efforts that they give to this amazing organization.

I have known of Nanas House and the work that Kim and her group do for 3 and a half years now. In that time I have been amazed at the selfless effort of Kim and Donna and their staff to helping children in Brevard County. I am impressed not only with the leadership and volunteers but also with the house parents that I have met. An organization like this - 100% volunteer, doing work that not only will pay dividends today but also for years into the future is one that should be supported. The hope and love and guidance provided to these children will help ensure that they become successful citizens of Brevard County and contribute to the future of the area. I have provided some of my time and money to the organization because I believe so strongly in the good work that they do and would encourage all to check out their worthwhile good deeds on their website (www. http://nanaschildrenshome.com/). Theirs is a light that shines brightly. Michael Brohawn, Melbourne Beach FL

Nana’s House is a wonderful Blessing to our community and state. Helping neglected, abused, needy or abandoned children find hope and love is what this nonprofit is all about. The 100% volunteers work tirelessly to help the precious children..who ask for nothing in return. We all receive back much much more than we ever thought possible. Our community is so very generous with all their donations that help support the Thrift Cottage. On behalf of the Nana’s House Volunteers we would appreciate your consideration and support.

I first learned of Nana's House about 6-8 years ago. This organization provides safe loving homes for Needy, abused, neglected or abandoned children ( NANA). They have gone from one home to building a gated community that will have 8 homes housing up to 40 children. The community features a pool, community building, gardening and a playground. It is almost completely. The true beauty is that this has been accomplished all by donations! We are 100% community funded and 100% volunteer ran. Not one penny goes to payroll; it all goes to support the mission and the children!

I have volunteered with Nana's House almost since inception. It is incredible to see the outpouring from the community with volunteers who helped renovate our first home and now to our Gated Community constructed by volunteer builders and contractors. We hold annual fundraisers and operate two thrift stores for our income - we have no paid staff. But the truly remarkable part is the children we've helped since 2009 - 43 neglected, abused, needy or abandoned children. And with the completion of our Gated Community we will be able to help even more. Most are still with us, but many were reunited with their families after their lives were put back in order. And we help there to by directing the parents to counseling, jobs training, and local help to set them on the right path. But even if they stay with us, we teach the children they are loved and were created for a purpose.
