Hammer & Nails grew out of a temporary ministry in which North Industry Christian Church partnered with Group WorkCamps to host a week- long camp to assist disadvantaged Stark County area homeowners with home and property repairs. "In both 1995 and 1998, our camps were filled with 800 church youth from across the country and 100 area homeowners were assisted!"

The success of the workcamps, along with encouragement and support from the community led to the creation of Hammer & Nails becoming an independent 501(c)3 non profit.

To date, nearly 1,600 homeowners have been helped, but the need is great. Projects are approved, just waiting for volunteers and funding to bless the homeowner on our list.
