Habitat offers home repair services
to homeowners so they can continue to live
in safe, decent homes for years to come.

A Brush With Kindness is an exterior home repair preservation program that offers painting, in addition to landscaping, and minor exterior home repair services to eligible homeowners. We believe that everyone should continue to live in safe, decent homes for years to come.

We use volunteers to help with the affordable exterior work. Our affiliate will purchase what is needed for materials. Afterwards, homeowners will then have to repay for the materials at a no-interest loan based upon income and ability to repay. Furthermore, if your income won’t allow this repayment, you will be denied.

However, you can also apply for Labor-Only. This is for homeowners who need help landscaping and other work that doesn’t require materials. This could also include homeowners who already have the materials but need help from volunteers.

Please ensure you meet and understand the requirements.
