Greetings from Northeast Residence,
As many people have said, 2020 and 2021 were not exactly been typical years. A pandemic ebbed and flowed overshadowed almost everything. This has been especially true in the field of services for people with disabilities and continues to be top of mind. Our first and primary responsibility is to ensure the health and safety of the people we support. I am proud of the heroic work our staff has done and continues to do each day.
In 2020, Northeast Residence approached Hammer Residences, another provider that works in the west metro, and shares the passion and values of NER. We believed that we could both be better if we joined forces. After months of meetings and sharing who we were, we both agreed and we start on this journey together.
On January 1, 2021, NER was acquired by Hammer Residences, and we began to work together to merge the two organizations.
We remain so grateful to our staff, donors, volunteers, families, and community members. We have shown once again that NER is a remarkable place. We are humbled to be part of the family and grateful that you are as well.
We look forward to staying in touch with you.
John Estrem, CEO, Northeast Residence and Hammer Residences
Blaine Stephens, 2022 Board President, Northeast Residence and Hammer Residences
