Area of Greatest Need

Your donation to the Area of Greatest Need Fund gives Hammer the flexibility to direct the dollars where needed most.

“As the Director of Environmental Services at Hammer for almost 30 years, I see the impact of your generosity on a daily basis. As those we support and their homes age, we’re doing more home improvement projects than ever before. Your gifts to the home improvement fund make it possible for us to react quickly. Thank you.”

 

Home Activities

Your donation to the Home Activities Fund allows you to make a gift toward activities such as a special dinner out, or event tickets. You may direct your gift to a specific home, or to the general Home Activities Fund available to all. 

“Last year everyone at the house, along with their caregivers, went to Orchestra Hall for a night of music, attended Disney on Ice to see Frozen, and enjoyed the Chanhassen dinner theater. And of course, no year would be complete without a visit to the Minnesota State Fair!  These are only possible with your generous contributions and allows the individuals at the group home to experience their world – as well as bond with each other. Thank you.”

 

Quality of Life

I am grateful to you for realizing how important family connections are, even when they are many miles away. This visit was only possible because of Quality of Life Funds. Thank you.”

 

Employee Excellence

You help my anxiety about money! I’ve been a caregiver at Hammer for several years now and have always been impressed by the commitment to those we serve and those who care for them. With my gratitude.”
