Our Story

Our Mission

Hammer Travel’s story begins in 1923, when our parent company, Hammer Residences opened its doors.

To Provide People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities the Opportunity to Experience Life to its Fullest

The concept was simple; “be a community of people who respect an individual’s abilities, whose collective spirit makes dreams come true, and whose innovations lead the way.” It was from Hammer’s commitment to service and leadership that the idea of starting a specialized travel company came about. Hammer Travel materialized from the realization that Hammer has the experience, the staffing resources and commitment to deliver a quality, and safe travel experience for individuals needing support.

Our Vision We believe meaningful travel plays an important role in the quality of life and that everyone should have the opportunity to experience it. Travel promotes intellectual growth, social inclusion, independence and self-confidence. Hammer Travel is dedicated to making the travel experience memorable and pleasurable for each person we serve.

Our Values Respecting Abilities Our trip leaders all have a residential services background and are able to provide the best possible care to support our traveler’s needs. Reaching for Opportunities Each trip provides opportunities to learn about the world while enhancing independence and self-confidence. Realizing Dreams Our trips are designed to promote individuality and create a unique experience for each of our travelers.
