Paint Tacoma Beautiful is a program that provides free exterior painting to low income homeowners during the spring and summer months. While these times are uncertain, we can count on the fact that the need for community is stronger now than it ever was. Let's recommit to our neighbors, and demonstrate that we are closer because of social distancing, not further apart. We invite you to join us this summer to volunteer Paint Tacoma Beautiful!

We are recruiting individuals and teams to prep and paint houses for our 2020 paint season. We will begin our work together in July 2020. Get a group of friends together, or join us on your own and meet new people; together we'll paint a house for a neighbor in need.

  • Connect with your community, and meet new people in Tacoma
  • Gain skills in exterior painting, home repair, and project management
  • No prior experience necessary

Since 1985 Paint Tacoma Beautiful has mobilized volunteers to paint houses free of charge for more than 2,200 low income, elderly, and disabled homeowners across Pierce County. This is a great opportunity for volunteers to visually see the impact they are making, and build community. We look forward to this season being a time to experience the joy of being together using safe, social distancing practices. Many of the homeowners who apply to our program often live in isolation due to age, disabilities, and other factors that limit them from leaving their homes and engaging with the community. This program is all about showing up for them and building connections across generations, neighborhood lines, and other identities that separate us.

*COVID-19 Update: We are continuing to recruit volunteers for this opportunity and plan to begin our work together in July 2020.
