In 1923, founder Alvina Hammer opened our doors because she believed that individuals with disabilities have the right to live in a loving home environment where they could flourish, developing independence and self-confidence. We have compassionately cared for adults and children with developmental disabilities for over 90 years.
It’s not just what we do. It’s who we are. Our mission remains true to her vision: provide adults and children with developmental disabilities the opportunity to live life to its fullest. In her memory, our volunteers, board members and families advocate for legislation to ensure the health and well-being of all people with developmental disabilities.
Hammer has adapted to change and changed with the times, always focused on meeting the needs of the people we serve. With support from staff, volunteers, donors, and families, the people who live in our homes, apartments, and In-home services are given the opportunity live their lives to the fullest. – less
