Lakewood Help for Homes Sept. 21-22
***The City of Lakewood and housing nonprofit Brothers Redevelopment partner to brighten the homes and neighborhoods of our residents!
**Nonprofit Brothers’ first-ever Lakewood Help for Homes Project!
*140 volunteers, 8 households and unlimited fun and good will!
Lakewood — Brothers Redevelopment’s Volunteer Department is teaming up with the City of Lakewood to paint eight homes, make minor house repairs and clean up yards. This epic effort will boost our neighbors’ spirits and connections with their community, help preserve residential property values and improve residents’ chances for stable home ownership.
About 140 volunteers will have a brush with greatness as this painting and cleanup “machine” gets to work at 8 a.m. each day for senior residents and persons with disabilities across Lakewood.
City employees from Public Works, Employee Relations, Planning and Community Resources make up five of 12 groups of volunteers. Others hail from West Metro Fire Department, McLain High School, South Jefferson County Rotary Club, Academy Mortgage, TCF Bank and HKS Inc. People from all walks are uniting in the common purpose of beautifying homes and Lakewood.
Paint and repair jobs like these will save each homeowner upward of $5,000 and benefit them all for years to come by helping them protect the value of their homes and their opportunities for aging in place. These local investments help stabilize whole neighborhoods.
Spread the word to potential clients who could use a hand like this and to people who love to serve their communities (while having a blast).
Experience why Brothers’ projects with great civic partners like those in Lakewood have flourished for almost five decades! Come meet our unforgettable homeowners, including:
- A 71-year-old mother who is the primary caregiver for her 47-year-old daughter with Down syndrome
- A former Jefferson County library worker and crossing guard now in her mid-80s
- A 71-year-old former dance instructor who prizes self-reliance as she battles MS
- And other homeowners who are equally interesting and deserving of a helping hand
Thanks again to the City of Lakewood and the spirited volunteers who step up to make a difference in their communities.
