Hammer Volunteers Are The Heart Of Our Organization

Helping someone else reach their dreams and achieve their goals can be one of life’s most rewarding experiences. With volunteering, there’s no better way to get involved, meet new people and claim your part in helping Hammer achieve our mission: to provide adults and children with developmental disabilities the opportunity to experience life to its fullest.

More than 500 volunteers contribute to the lives of the people we support! 

We sustain our robust volunteer force by offering a variety of activities with the flexibility to  fit your lifestyle. If you want to join some of the most dedicated volunteers in the Twin Cities, you have come to the right place!



A few benefits of volunteering:

  • Meet new people
  • Make a difference in your community
  • To have fun
  • Put your interests and passions to work
  • Build upon skills you may already have or realize new ones
  • Career development opportunities
  • Reference letters for school and job applications
  • Build your resume and portfolio

It is the highlight of our week whenever we get to spend time with Leo and Katie. Whether we’re shooting hoops or going on walks, it’s great to be able to catch up with two of our favorite friends. We feel so blessed to be able to work out with them at Lifetime or at the park because we get to enjoy the company of two all-star athletes!” – Nick Matko, Volunteer

Respecting Abilities. Reaching for Opportunities. Realizing Dreams.
