Cowtown Brush Up

Revitalizing Neighborhoods
50 Homes Painted in a Single Day
Saturday, October 19

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

Each house requires a team of 20. Can you put a full team together? If not, smaller teams will be combined to make larger teams. Teams larger than 20 will be assigned 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.

How It Works

Depending on the size of your team and the size of the house, painting can take two to seven hours. Please clear your schedule until 3 p.m.


Get a group together (volunteers must be 12 or older).


Get everyone’s T-shirt sizes (S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL).


Determine who your Team Captain (main point of contact) will be.


Register your team online (total count and T-shirt sizes).


Collect liability waivers for all participants: Adult Waiver (18+) | Youth Waiver (12-17)


Make sure your group has ladders (ask friends, if needed).


Team Captains (or a representative) attend Team Captains Meeting to turn in ALL waivers and get house addresses, instructions, and supplies.


Arrive at your house at 8 a.m. on the day of the event.
