Cowtown Brush Up - Trinity Habitat for Humanity

Revitalizing Neighborhoods

Saturday, October 5th


Can you put a team together from your church or company? Or a team of friends and family?

Fill a whole house with a team of 20 or we’ll combine your smaller teams with others. Larger groups can paint multiple houses.

Twice a year, Trinity Habitat for Humanity partners with the City of Fort Worth and volunteers to help families in need of assistance do minor exterior rehabs and give their home a fresh coat of paint. It brightens up the neighborhoods and is such a huge help to the homeowners, many of whom are elderly residents on fixed incomes no longer able to do this work on their own. It is amazing to see the transformation that occurs in a single day with the help of hundreds of volunteers!

Meet Anna Carr, a cancer survivor, single mom, and retired teacher. She was overwhelmed with gratitude for the Life.Church volunteers who came out to help her paint her home in Como.
