 Brothers Redevelopment’s Home Modification and Repair (HMR) Department has funding and crews available now to fix and refurbish more houses throughout Jefferson county, as well as other metro Denver towns.

  Working with our local government partners, HMR can keep the heat on by repairing furnaces or installing new ones. HMR even repairs minor plumbing and electrical problems to keep homes safer. Brothers makes homes more accessible with construction projects such as the wheelchair ramps, stair lifts, grab bars and other safety features.

  The work does not cost income-eligible homeowners anything, while others are eligible for no-interest loans.

  For more information, contact Eden Armendariz at Brothers Redevelopment, 303-685-4225 or hmr@brothersredevelopment.org.
