A volunteer works on a Paint Tacoma-Pierce beautiful project in Tacoma last summer.
Low-income senior or disabled homeowners in need of a free exterior house painting this summer are invited to apply to the Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful program. Deadline for applications is April 15.

Using volunteer labor and donated supplies, paint crews are matched with homeowners all around Pierce County, from the urban core of Tacoma and Lakewood all the way out west to Gig Harbor and east to Elbe and Ashford. The program, sponsored by Associated Ministries, is in its 26th year.

Last summer, more than 1,600 people volunteered and painted 82 homes. Crews have painted 1,902 homes since the program began.

Interested homeowners may call (253) 383-3056, ext. 106, or download an application by clicking here.
