Paint the Town

Since 1994, NeighborWorks® DHR and South Dakota Housing have partnered to “Paint the Town.” This annual event takes place every spring during the first three weeks of June. Paint the Town is designed to be a community-based program to paint homes for single parents, seniors, people with disabilities, and other homeowners with a limited capacity. Teams of volunteers coordinate supplies and work together to paint homes.

2014 NeighborWorks Week will take place June 3rd-21st.   We will be painting 8 homes in 7 communities.  If you would like to volunteer to take part in this great community event please contact Tracy at 605-578-1401, or Stephany at 605-923-6007.  We are painting homes in : Rapid City, Central City, Lead, Deadwood, Sturgis, Spearfish, Belle Fourche, and Edgemont.
