Paint The Town™
June 7, 2014

Paint The Town, a Neighborhood Housing Services program, has been lending a hand to our senior, low-income and disabled neighbors for 31 years.  This project gives residents a newly painted home that enables them to remain there longer and revitalizes the neighborhood in which they live.  Every June more than 2,000 volunteers form teams and paint these houses.

Paint The Town began in 1983 when volunteers got together to improve one neighborhood.  That first year it was the Vista neighborhood in Boise.  This year Paint The Town™ is going back to their roots and again focusing all their efforts in one area of town - the Boise Bench neighborhoods.  

Each year, Paint The Town™ will have a new focus area.  If your home needs paint, but you don't live in the current focus area, check back next year!
