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.
- In addition to volunteers, Habitat uses donated materials and takes no profit for their services.
- Homeowners are asked to repay Habitat for the cost of purchased materials if financially able. Payments are used to help more families with repairs.
