With the combination of costs and physical labor, we just couldn’t get things done. Hearts & Hammers gave us 200%. When they left, it looked absolutely perfect.” - Milton & Bernadine

There are no words that can express the gratitude we have for the work you all put forth on helping our parents.” - Al & Teddy

I’m so glad there is a program to help Senior Citizens get work done to their homes so that the city will not be bothering us about what needs to be done.” - Tina
