A Brush With Kindness-Home Repair Program



A Brush With Kindness serves as an extension of our new home construction program, focusing on minor and mostly exterior repairs on homes of low-to-moderate income families to improve house soundness and safety, restore pride and dignity, and revitalize local neighborhoods. A Brush With Kindness also strengthens connections within the community and preserves affordable housing stock. As in new house builds, A Brush With Kindness families must be willing to partner with us and have the ability to pay for services.

A Brush with Kindness ensures that families live in safe and well-maintained homes. Through this program, families and individuals will be able to reclaim their homes with pride and dignity.
