Colorado Nonprofit Gives El Paso County Home in Need A Fresh Coat of Paint
Brothers Redevelopment Inc. Launched Paint-A-Thon in Colorado Springs for First Time
By: Brothers Redevelopment Inc.
The City of Colorado Springs contracted Brothers Redevelopment Inc. to relaunch its Residential Rehabilitation Program in El Paso County to support 50 - 65 projects through March, 2019. This program offers grants for income-qualified homeowners to make important and essential repairs that improve at-home mobility and safety.
"This was a great first event in Colorado Springs, it was truly amazing to see the homeowners face light up afterwards,"
Brothers Redevelopment Inc.'s Paint-A-Thon has painted 7,400 houses using more than 133,000 volunteers since 1978. Sponsored by ANB Bank, this year's event took roughly six hours with 15 volunteers assisting an elderly Colorado Springs resident.
"Painting a home can cost thousands of dollars," said Martinez. "Our Paint-A-Thon program offers qualified homeowners the chance to devote their resources and fixed incomes to other important costs, such as medication, groceries and bills, without having to forego maintenance of their most important investment—their home."
