Your financial gifts open doors and unlock  possibilities for everyone at Hammer & NER to live their lives to the fullest.

Give to the Max! 

At Hammer & NER, we are opening doors for Give to the Max Day – just like our founder, Alvina Hammer, opened her doors back in 1923. As a nurse, she saw how people with disabilities were being treated in the institutions – and she knew it could be so much better. Today, 100 years later, we remain focused on what is most importantthe people we serve in our homes and apartments.

  • Provide safe and well-managed homes
  • Provide well-trained support staff
  • Purchase accessible vans, including gas and auto repairs
  • Pay for special meals and birthday celebrations
  • Cover medical bills not covered by government insurance
  • Purchase technology necessary for social interaction
