The mission of Hearts & Hammers –Twin Cities is to provide exterior home improvement assistance for Senior Citizens, Disabled Adults, and Veterans of the United States Armed Forces or their Surviving Spouse so that they may continue living independently.

Labor for Program Days is provided by teams of volunteers from Twin Cities-area businesses, professional associations, and churches. An average team consists of fifty volunteers from up to three different organizations. Hearts & Hammers recommends that volunteering organizations make monetary or other contributions to help cover the costs associated with rehabilitating their home on Program Day. In return, Hearts & Hammers provides teams with materials and supplies, including ladders, scrapers, paint, pails, brushes, etc. Dumpsters, portable restrooms, and boom lifts (if necessary) are also provided by Hearts & Hammers for each site.
