Second Chances - Preloved Clothing Sale!

Rebecca Bangma from The House of Grace Trust - Hamilton

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.

Here when you need us

The Team from Ryman Healthcare Limited

Time spent in respite care can range from a single night to a few weeks. It provides a welcome break and peace of mind knowing that your loved one will receive round-the-clock care from friendly, experienced care teams.

May Kitchen knows how important it is to provide carers with a break. After visiting her husband Stuart in respite care at a Ryman village, she was tempted to move in herself! “If it was me, I think I would enjoy it because it’s just so beautiful and the food is good.”

Ryman villages provide warm and welcoming communities. Where residents can enjoy activities and outings while forming friendships along the way.
