Project Home 30th Annual Paint-a-thon

Project Home got its start in 1970 as a group of neighbors helping neighbors with their homes. It continues its mission to improve the quality and affordability of housing for low-to-moderate income residents in Dane and Green counties. Earlier this month the nonprofit held its 30th annual Paint-a-thon, and we stopped by one of the houses getting a makeover to chat with volunteers and a very grateful homeowner. Learn more about the nonprofit and its other home maintenance, energy efficiency, and repair programs and classes in this interview with outreach manager Jason Hafeman:
