OUR VOLUNTEERS HELP WITH REPAIRS

Our A Brush With Kindness program allows unpaid volunteers to perform the affordable work for our eligible homeowners.

The volunteers who work on the home are unpaid volunteers. A few, if any of them, are trained in the building trades and may be unskilled or have had previous experience.

HABITAT MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES, EXPRESS OR IMPLED, REGARDING ANY MATERIALS USED OR WORK DONE BY ANYONE AT THE HOME.

IT'S A HAND-UP NOT A HAND-OUT.

Our affiliate will purchase what is needed for project materials.

This can include:

  • Paint
  • Wood for decks and ramps
  • Landscaping and plants
  • So much more
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.
