Review for Gardner's House Inc, Hartford, CT, USA
I am president of a foundation that makes grants to people who are indigent, elderly, and often, ill. Our recipients apply for assistance through partner agencies that do hands-on work with these clients. One of our most compassionate and effective partners is Gardner's House. Maggie Gardner and the folks at Gardner's House are a pleasure to work with. They have a knack of helping those who are most in need of assistance. I don't know how they find their clients, but I do know that the clients couldn't be in better hands. Gardner's House is a fierce, tireless advocate for those who are suffering from any kind of cancer, which includes the less "sexy" cancers. There are no walkathons, runs, golf tournaments, t-shirts, or crowd-based fundraising efforts for many of those who come to Gardner's House. Gardner's House and Maggie Gardner helps all of them. Food, housing, utility bills, medical expenses, furniture, special clothing, transportation - anything clients need to help them survive the most debilitating diseases and treatments is something to be sought and provided. I admire the work they do and their effectiveness in meeting the needs of the people for whom they do it. They deserve any assistance and recognition available.
