Mission Statement

To provide safe, affordable, accessible housing and housing services for the low-income, elderly and disabled of Colorado.

Organization History

Brothers Redevelopment, Inc. (BRI) was founded in 1971, when four Denver residents recognized the urgent need for free or low cost housing and housing related services for Southwest Denver's low income residents; the mission was expanded statewide to accommodate a few outlying Paint-A-Thon sites and rural Housing Counseling clients; however, nearly all of BRI's activities take place in the Denver metro area and following counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Boulder, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson. Since the organization was established to address disparities in housing among the region's low income residents, the agency worked with countless supporters and tens of thousands of volunteers to serve more than 90,000 clients across Colorado!

GOALS: BRI's major goals are: (1) that all households, but especially those most vulnerable in our society be given an opportunity to live in safe and healthy homes; (2) stabilize and sustain neighborhoods and communities and (3) preserve affordable housing opportunities for homeowners. Each program has specific goals, BRI will meet or exceed the number of clients we served in each program from the previous year. In 2014, we helped a total of 4,841 homes, families and clients. In 2015, we will help 5,000 or more.

Testimonials

"I want to express my appreciation for the rails that were installed around my porch and the steps going down to the sidewalk. I feel much more secure and I'm less afraid of falling. During the winters these railings mean the difference in getting out and being housebound. This has made a major impact on my life and independence."-Frank

"I was so stressed out. I knew I needed painting and landscaping work done on my house but with my health condition I just couldn't do it myself and I couldn't afford to hire someone on my $1,500per/month budget either. Thanks to BRI this is one less thing to keep me awake at night. It was more than a privilege to meet all the wonderful people from BRI and the volunteers who spent their time with me." -Rita
