A Brush With Kindness Repair Program

A Brush With Kindness Program

A Brush with Kindness is an exterior home preservation program that offers painting, landscaping and minor repair services to eligible homeowners so they can continue to live in safe, decent homes for years to come.

We use volunteers to help with the affordable exterior work. The materials need to be paid for with a no-interest loan based on your income and ability to repay. If your income won't allow this repayment, you will be denied.
