Donor Story

Pat and Michael Houston

The Houstons recognized Hammer as being a very important part of their lives, especially in the life of their daughter and only child, Kerry. They knew that leaving their estate directly to Kerry was not an option. Receiving a significant inheritance would disqualify her from the benefits that make it possible for her to be supported by Hammer. They wanted to express their gratitude and appreciation for the services and support Hammer has provided to Kerry and many others who live with disabilities. Pat and Michael chose to establish the Patricia and Michael Houston Home Accessibility Fund as part of their estate plan.

“This gift is intended to benefit all individuals supported by Hammer. It will help sustain the future of Hammer and enhance their ability to serve people with disabilities, especially the challenges that face adults as they age,” says Pat.
