Neighborhood Caretakers - A Legacy of Stablization

Brothers Redevelopment’s Neighborhood Caretakers initiative utilizes teams of volunteers to revitalize metro area neighborhoods—one block at a time.

Annually, ‘Brothers’ works with local governments, neighborhood associations, residents and sponsors to carry out all manner of renovation and home repair.

‘Brothers’ recruits volunteers for each effort, and then coordinates repairs to include:

House Painting

Yard Clean-Up

Minor Roofing
and Repair

Gutter Repair

Tree Trimming


Fence Installation
and Repair

Caulking

Deck Repair


Minor Safety and
Mobility Improvements

Generally, all repairs are made FREE of charge to residents. By leveraging volunteer manpower, corporate and/or government sponsorship, and securing materials at reduced rates, BRI is able to cover project costs.

Local governments hold the key to a successful event—often through the provision of funding, volunteers or other support services. When BRI teams with a local government, municipal officials are often asked to:

  • Provide funding for the project.
  • Identify location(s) that can benefit from the project.
  • Pre-qualify homeowners to ensure compliance.
  • Help to identify additional sponsors, supporters for the event.

Residents are strongly encouraged to participate in Neighborhood Caretakers events. Working side-be-side with their neighbors can instill a sense of camaraderie and pride among a neighborhood’s residents.

Since 1988, Brothers Redevelopment has renovated multiple metro area neighborhoods, including: Baker, Berkeley, Brighton, Cole, Commerce City, Curtis Park, Derby, Elyria-Swansea, Five Points, Globeville, Goat Hill, Highlands, Irondale, La Alma/Lincoln Park, Monaco, Montclair, Villa Park, Valverde and Westwood.

Established in 1971, Brothers Redevelopment has since become synonymous with the provision of safe, affordable, accessible housing and services for Colorado’s low-income, elderly and disabled populations.


The organization also owns and manages several housing properties for residents who qualify; a statewide Housing Counseling Program; a Home Maintenance and Repair program; and the state’s largest single-day volunteer event that serves seniors, the Annual Paint-A-Thon.
