Community responds to Help for Homes

Approximately 200 volunteers gave their time this past Saturday, May 14 to help spruce up the homes of fellow neighbors as part of the 17th Annual Help for Homes community project. 

Help for Homes (HFH), hosted by the City of Brighton and Brothers Redevelopment, Inc., brings volunteers and neighbors together to paint or fix up homes needing minor exterior repairs and perform general yard clean up.

This year, thanks to funding from the Brighton Legacy Foundation, Platte Valley Medical Center and United Power, 13 homes were painted, repaired, and yards cleaned. Additionally, 173 lunches were prepared for the teams by volunteers with the Eagle View Adult Center, sponsored by the Senior Advisory Board of Eagle View.  

Help for Homes is simple – it is volunteers helping low income elderly and disabled homeowners paint and perform minor outside home repairs.  Since its inception in 2006, 290 Brighton homeowners have been helped by the efforts of volunteers.  

Thank you to the following teams who participated: First Presbyterian Church, Brighton Professional Fire Fighters, Knights of Columbus, Greater Brighton Neighborhood Volunteers, Brighton Elks Lodge, Flatirons Church Wednesday Night Men’s Bible Study Group, Rocky Mountain Biz Connections with members of Brighton City Council, Brighton Church of Christ, Four Teams from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints from Horse Creek, Todd Creek, Second Creek/ Brighton Stake, and the Piccadilly Group, Brighton Police Department and Explorers,  DDJ Study Group, Brighton Rotary, Brighton Clinic of Chiropractic and Barr Lake.  Special thanks to Wade and Greg Smith and Elias Huerta for driving and the use of their trailers as well as the Brighton Public Works department for their assistance with debris. 

For more information about Help for Homes, please contact Sue Corbett, Eagle View Adult Center Manager, at 303-655-2075.
