10Years Volunteering in Denver Neighborhoods

Extreme Community Makeover is a movement of volunteers working in partnership with residents of specific Denver neighborhoods to complete home and neighborhood improvement projects. These projects include graffiti removal, landscaping, painting, yard work, or other projects identified by the residents. Groups such as churches, companies, families, and schools may participate, or individuals can take part. Equally important as fences that are built are the relationships being built—between the volunteers and community members, among the neighbors on a block, and between the community and resources in their neighborhood. Our mission is to build safer communities, friendships, and strengthen our city through volunteer lead home improvement and neighborhood revitalization projects.

Since 2008 ECM has completed:

  • Projects Completed 2,598
