It happened again … For the sixth straight year we were named a Star Tribune “Top Workplace”! Hammer is one of only 13 organizations statewide that has won in all six years of the award’s history. Our mission, to provide adults and children with developmental disabilities the opportunity to experience life to its fullest is not easy work, but it is invaluable, life-changing work. Receiving this award is clear confirmation that our organization believes in what we do.
