developmental disabilities. The people we serve live in Hammer’s group homes or

apartment programs with the support of caring teams who provide on-going assistance,

teach independent living skills, support health and personal cares, help with household

tasks, and offer social and emotional support. We are looking for people to partner with

the people we serve to help them live their best life.

About Hammer Residences

In 1923, founder Alvina Hammer, opened our doors because she believed that

individuals with disabilities have the right to live in a loving home environment where

they could flourish, develop independence and self-confidence. We have

compassionately cared for adults and children with developmental disabilities for over

96 years. Our mission remains true to her vision: provide adults and children with

developmental disabilities the opportunity to live life to its fullest. In her memory, our

volunteers, board members and families advocate for legislation to ensure the health

and well-being of all people with developmental disabilities. Hammer has adapted to

change and changed with the times, always focused on meeting the needs of the

people we serve. With support from staff, volunteers, donors, and families, the people

who live in our homes, apartments, and In-home services are given the opportunity live

their lives to the fullest.


At Hammer you are placed to the location with the best fit for you and the people being

supported. You will start at $14.00/hr and Hammer offers an increase for DSP’s after a

training period which typically lasts about 45 days. You have an opportunity for overtime

if you are looking for that as well. We offer a competitive benefits package, programs to

help with car repairs and assistance with education expenses. See our

website  for more information on benefits offered.
