Mission Statement

Offers Community Service through care and committment. Operation Paintbrush is funded through Henrico local government, in which we screen low income families or disabled homeowners and assist them with minor home repairs, including painting the exterior. We supply the paint and volunteers free of charge as long as they meet our requirements.

Description

Henrico County’s Community Maintenance staff has put together a program called "Operation Paintbrush". The purpose of this program is to paint the homes of needy citizens who are without adequate resources or family help, and whose homes are in danger of further deteriorating without assistance. Typically, they are senior citizens who can be classified as very low income.

Operation Paintbrush works in coordination with volunteer groups to assist Henrico’s citizens who cannot adequately care for their own homes. Paint projects range from half-day to two-day projects. Sometimes minor repairs are needed, but usually a volunteer group of 10 or more can make the necessary repairs and paint the home within one day. We’ve worked with local businesses such as Altria, NTT Data, and a variety of community organizations.

If you would like your group to become involved in our program, please call me at 501-7632, Monday-Friday between the hours of 8-4:30pm or respond to this email.
