ABWK


Let’s revitalize the
appearance of the neighborhood and
strengthen connections within the community.


A Brush With Kindness is an exterior home preservation program that offers painting, landscaping, and minor exterior home 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.

Please ensure you meet and understand the requirements.

We are ending our season for A Brush With Kindness by the end of this month, due to weather. We ask that you fill out your application beginning of February for the Spring season. Thank you for your patience as we finish our last couple of ABWK projects this season.
