A Brush with Kindness

A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) is a program that assists low-income families in repairing and renovating their homes so they can continue to live in safe, decent homes. We focus on assisting elderly, veteran families and those with limited mobility.

A Brush with Kindness projects include painting, landscaping, weatherization and critical repair services.

How does the program work?

  • Habitat selects partner families based on income, need, and willingness to partner.
  • Habitat affiliates use volunteer labor and donated materials to keep costs low and take no profit for their services.
  • A no-interest loan is made to the homeowner to cover the cost of the project. Payments are placed in a revolving fund to help A Brush with Kindness serve others in need.
  • This program would not be possible without the generosity of our sponsors.

Why does Habitat for Humanity offer these exterior maintenance services?

  • Families live in safe and well-maintained homes.
  • Neighborhoods are revitalized.
  • Community connections are made.
  • Affordable housing inventory is preserved and our most vulnerable are allowed to age in place with dignity.
