Brothers Redevelopment and Jefferson County partner to offer residents home repairs and modifications at no or low cost
EDGEWATER – Snowy days and colder temperatures have arrived! With wintry weather upon us, Jeffco residents are fortunate that trusted housing nonprofit Brothers Redevelopment, Inc. and Jefferson County have joined forces to give homeowners a helping hand.
This partnership promotes and protects homeowner interests by offering essential home repairs (such as furnace repair and replacement) that preserve property values. It also offers accessibility, mobility and safety modifications. These services are available to income-eligible seniors, residents with disabilities and other qualifying families in unincorporated Jefferson County, as well as the cities of Mountain View, Edgewater and Wheat Ridge. Additional Jeffco municipalities fund similar programs for their residents using the skilled professionals of Brothers Redevelopment.
These Home Modification and Repair services, offered at no charge for most, are an incredible benefit in caring for one’s home. More importantly, these services can help fixed/limited-income seniors stretch their budgets to cover other important expenses, including groceries, prescriptions and rising utility bills. Services include:
• Electrical and plumbing repairs
• Installation of wheelchair ramps and other accessibility improvements
• Installation of safety bars, stair lifts and accessible showers/bathtubs
• Repair or replacement of home heating systems, water heaters and sewer systems
• Exterior house painting by the volunteers of BRI’s Paint-A-Thon program
• General home repairs
Established in 1971, Brothers Redevelopment, Inc. is a nonprofit providing housing and housing-related services to more than 5,000 low-income elderly, disabled and other households each year. BRI staff will help you determine if you are eligible for services.
