Help Restore Hansen Library

HC3 is very excited about this new up coming project! HC3 has acquired the Old Hansen Library Branch from the  City of Hammond. This Library has stood vacant for 13 years. During this time the building has occurred significant damage due to a compromised roof. HC3's goal is to  restore the original structure with the help of Indiana Landmarks and Greg Kil, an architect who specializes in historic preservation. Once the building has been restored the building will serve our community once again like it was originally intended. We are looking to provide Veteran support services, student tutoring, and adult workforce advancement. We have proceeded with having this building nominated on the Historical Registry as well as the National Registry. Your donation will help HC3's mission to restore this building. Thank you to the City of Hammond for their support. Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr., Africa Tarver, Executive Director of Redevelopment, the Redevelopment Commission, Anne Anderson, Director of Economic Development, and our 6th District Councilman Scott Rakos. It really does take the support of so many to make great things happen within our city, HC3 is proud to have an amazing community! We thank everyone for their ongoing support of HC3!! You can Help HC3 in our mission by donating to help restore the old Hansen Library. -HC3 President,  Amy Radolak

Local Roofers 26, others aid Hessville nonprofit's Old Hansen Library restoration project; Color Run 5K set for Aug. 11

HESSVILLE — A neighborhood organization’s mission to restore a Great Depression-era library into a resource center is well on its way thanks to the community’s generosity, said Amy Radolak, president of the Hessville Commerce & Community Creative.

A big contributor to the Hansen Library project in Hessville is Local Roofers 26 union, Radolak said. Apprentices and journeymen from the local union have given up many of their weekends this summer that they otherwise could be spending with family, Radolak said.
