Nonprofit Brothers Redevelopment’s Paint-A-Thon program is accepting applications for its 40th Paint-A-Thon anniversary season. Between March and September, the Paint-A-Thon crews will paint 100 or more homes for income-qualified senior and disabled homeowners – at no cost to them.

Through its Paint-A-Thon program, Brothers Redevelopment has painted more than 7,250 local houses with 133,000 volunteers.

Nominate a neighbor, friend, family member or yourself by calling 720-339-5864, or visiting BrothersRedevelopment.org.

To qualify, homeowners must be 60 years or older and/or have a disability, must own and occupy their Denver metro area, and plan to live in it for at least 12 months. The home must be no taller than one and a half stories – and in need of painting.

The Paint-A-Thon program offers qualified homeowners the ability to devote limited resources and fixed incomes to other important costs, such as medication, groceries and bills, without having to forgo maintaining their most important investment – their home. Painting a home can cost upward of $5,000.

For more information, contact Brothers Redevelopment at 720-339-5864 or chad@brothersredevelopment.org, or visit BrothersRedevelopment.org.
