Paint the Town is an annual one-day CHS community event that targets a neighborhood in need of support. CHS partners with local businesses, corporations and faith organizations to do exterior repairs, painting, and landscaping for one neighborhood. Paint the Town is designed not only to assist low income homeowners with the preservation of their homes, but also to lift the neighborhood by the aggregate effect. Repairs completed during Paint the Town often allow families to keep their homeowner’s insurance in place and thus decrease their risk of foreclosure. Eligible homeowners are elderly or disabled individuals living on a fixed income who are unable to do the repairs themselves.

Paint the Town 2017 will be held in mid-September.

Paint the Town sponsors make a donation to assist with the costs of the home repairs and provide volunteers for the day of the event. Each sponsor team works together with a skilled CHS project leader, making exterior improvements to the property they are sponsoring. For more information about becoming involved with Paint the Town, please contact Amy Murphy, Community Engagement Coordinator, at amurphy@chshousing.org or 336-676-6986.
