Paint Your Heart Out: Beautifying Neighborhoods One House at a Time
Saturday, August 14, 2021

Every August, over 250 volunteers from local businesses, community organizations, and corporations come together to paint the homes of individuals with disabilities, veterans, and limited-income homeowners in Salt Lake County in our annual Paint Your Heart Out event.

Since the inception in 1985, NeighborWorks Salt Lake has painted over 823 homes in the community. Our goal of helping homeowners who cannot physically or financially paint their home themselves has many positive impacts, not just for the house itself but for everyone involved. By beautifying just one home, the homeowners feel like a valued part of their community, the neighbors get inspired to spruce up their homes too, and the volunteers know they can truly make a difference for others.

Recruiting Homeowners

The 35th Annual Paint Your Heart Out event is happening on Saturday, August 14, 2021, and NeighborWorks Salt Lake is already gearing up for the event with the goal of painting 15 homes. Space is limited every year, so we suggest submitting your recommendation or application EARLY. To suggest a home that needs to be painted or to sign-up for your home to be painted. Please click on “Paint My Home” to submit your recommendation or to sign up. Please note the following before submitting your recommendation or application:

  • That the homeowner is either a veteran, over the age of 65, or has/have a disability or cares for a person with a disability, or is on a limited income and needs their home painted.
  • That they or you live within Salt Lake County

*Please note that submitting a suggestion does not guarantee that a home will be selected to be painted. All homes must undergo an evaluation by a NeighborWorks Staff member before eligibility can be determined.
