Mission Statement

To provide safe, affordable, accessible housing and housing-related 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 sites, high-need areas and rural Housing Counseling clients. Today, a majority of BRI's activities take place in the seven-county Denver metro area as well as El Paso County.

The Home Modification and Repair and Paint-A-Thon programs are the longest running programs in the organization, both formed in the 1970's. During the early 1980's, Brothers made the transition from housing refurbishment to housing provision with its purchase of an 84-unit, federally subsidized senior and disabled adult housing community. Today, BRI owns and operates 14 (527 total units) affordable housing developments and now provides social service support on-site through our new Aging in Place Initiative.

BRI is adapting to the rapidly changing housing market in Denver and is supporting Colorado residents most affected by recent affordable housing crisis. We have bolstered our long-standing Housing Counseling program to now include: first time homebuyers, foreclosure, reverse mortgage and rental counseling. In 2014, we established the Colorado Housing Connects helpline to direct callers to appropriate housing resources. Most recently, we have created the Denver Temporary Rental and Utility Assistance program; this allows us to provide financial assistance to prevent evictions and reduce homelessness.

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 fiscal year 2017, Brothers was able to serve over 15,000 Colorado households--with your help, we hope to surpass this number in 2018!

BRI has formulated a formal strategic plan to meet foreseen coming needs/challenges and address rising housing prices, growth in senior population and uncertain funding environment. We've branded this plan as our "Roadmap to Sustainability." BRI has identified five primary goals to ensure our existing programs continue to thrive, new initiatives meet the needs of our changing community and the organization continues to function efficiently as possible: (1) Increase availability of affordable housing, (2) maximize earned income through Brothers Property Management, (3) formalize, add and enhance services empowering seniors through Aging in Place Initiative, (4) refresh Colorado Housing Connects Helpline with new platforms and services and (5) reshape BRI key programs and restructure organization for maximum sustainability.

Testimonials

"We didn't know so much help was available. Without Brothers helping us, we would have to get out of our home. And with this housing market, where could we go?"

… "I wish I had learned about your services sooner. The representative gave me a light at the end of a dark months long nightmare, and for that she and your service has been invaluable."
