A Brush with Kindness

A Brush Of Kindness is a locally-operated program serving low-income homeowners who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes.

How we do it

  • Groups of volunteers help homeowners with exterior maintenance. This typically includes painting, minor exterior repairs, landscaping, weatherization and exterior clean-up.
  • Habitat selects partner families based on income, need and willingness to partner.
  • Homeowners are asked to repay Habitat for the cost of purchased materials if financially able.  Payments are used to help more families with repairs.
