bicycling 0044Founded in 1923 by Alvina Hammer, Hammer was only one of two Minnesota organizations at that time to offer people with disabilities the opportunity to thrive in a school and home setting. Now, 91 years later, we remain true to Miss Hammer’s founding vision: we are a community of people who respect the individual’s abilities, whose collective spirit makes dreams come true and whose innovations continue to lead the way.

Today we continue with a mission started 91 years ago to provide adult and children with developmental disabilities the opportunity to experience life to its fullest.

Respecting Abilities. Reaching for Opportunities. Realizing Dreams.
