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 am a volunteer with this Great Ministry of helping Neglected, Abused,Needy,or Abandoned children. I have seen joy on the children’s faces being rescued and being taken care for that they didn’t know existed . With monetary donations it gives Nana’s House parents an opportunity to Provide these children in a loving, secure, safe home to experience Godly ways,and hope. I volunteer working at Nana’s Thrift Cottage, my husband & I helping also with donation pick-up which help provide resources for theses children.
I’ve been involved with this organization since its beginning. I love volunteering for this charity because it is an all volunteer organization that helps local children that are neglected abused needy or abandon. I have made many friends through volunteering and the relationships have been a blessing to me and my wife. They do great work and we have a Great family of volunteers
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.
