Beauty is all around us!

Founded in 1985, Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful (PTPB) organizes volunteer crews each summer to paint the exteriors of homes of low-income, elderly and disabled homeowners in Tacoma and other communities throughout Pierce County.

Since 1985, nearly 2,200 houses have been painted. This year, we plan to paint 27 more!

Make our community more beautiful by donating!

We are in need of supplies to accomplish our mission of beautifying Tacoma and Pierce County! You can help paint Tacoma and Pierce beautiful by donating to help us purchase paint and other supplies.
