COLORADO SPRINGS — Brothers Redevelopment’s Paint-A-Thon program is marking its 40th year brightening the homes and lives of senior homeowners by launching its first painting project in Colorado Springs in 20 years on Sept. 8.
Thanks to financial support and employee volunteers from ANB Bank, a crew will paint the home of an income-qualified senior or disabled homeowner — at no cost to them.
Through Paint-A-Thon, Brothers has painted roughly 7,400 houses using more than 133,000 volunteers — and we’re ready still to take on Front Range houses whose eligible owners need and want an exterior paint job.
The 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 forgo maintenance of their most important investment—their home. Painting a home can cost upward of $5,000.
The Paint-A-Thon is yet another way that Brothers is improving the lives of Colorado Springs residents. In March, the City of Colorado Springs extended and expanded its three-year relationship with Brothers by tapping the nonprofit to relaunch its Residential Rehabilitation Program. It offers grants for income-qualified homeowners to make important and essential repairs that improve at-home mobility and safety.
During that same time span, Brothers has been providing housing counseling and rental navigation to Colorado Springs residents, thanks to support from the Colorado Division of Housing and El Paso County.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to stage our signature event in Colorado Springs,” says Jeff Martinez, president of Brothers Redevelopment. “Because the Paint-A-Thon relies on donations, we just had to plot a sustainable financial path to offer this great service to seniors outside of the Denver area. Thanks to ANB Bank, this can now happen.”
Everyone needs a little Paint-A-Thon in their lives:
- Nominate a family member, friend, neighbor or yourself
- Must be an income-eligible homeowner of 60+ or disabled
- Homeowners must stay in the house at least 2 more years
- Homeowners must be onsite the day of painting
- The house can’t be taller than one and a half stories
- The house must need an exterior paint job
- Volunteers must be able to finish painting in 1 day
- Volunteers can make minor exterior repairs, clean up yards
