The House of Grace is a home. Volunteer 'House Parent's, and their children, live at the house, and provide the loving and stable family home that many young girls and their babies so desperately need. It's a place where the girls learn what a healthy family unit looks like, where they are encouraged to return to their own education and make plans for theirs and baby's futures, and it's a place where love, grace and learning abound. As a non-profit and non–government funded organisation, we rely on the support from people who share our heart to see young lives changed.
We are running a fundraiser and we need your help to make it a success! We need donations of good quality women's and children's clothing. Accepting all sizes, all seasons and accessories.
Check out the various drop off locations around Hamilton below.
If you're able to volunteer on the day, in the lead up to the day, or have a question, please get in contact with Michelle via email Michelle@thog.org.nz.
With your support we can provide a positive start in life for a new generation of families and help young Mum's plan for a brighter future.
What book sticks in your mind?
Today, I happened to glance at a copy of Waikato Times and lo and behold, most of the front page was dedicated to council declaring what a wonderful vista it will be when the 'derelict' municipal pools are demolished. I was astounded. I am almost certain that supporters of the revitalisation of the pools have never been given the same space and privilege of being on the Front Page. Where is the fair play here? The impartiality ? These pools have been with us for over 100 years, and are one, if not the only concrete outside pool, of its type in New Zealand. They have been the making of many memories for thousands of Hamiltonians and others over the years and yet The Waikato Times and other media sources have chosen to give very little support to the pools. Please people email council, even now at the 11th hour, your voice, our voices could make the difference!
