A Brush With Kindess

Years of deferred maintenance can cause a downward spiral of home deterioration and unsafe living conditions. Habitat's A Brush With Kindness (ABWK) program helps preserve homeownership by addressing needed repairs.


Many ABWK clients are elderly, people with disabilities, veterans or single parents. Our program gives low-income homeowners access to volunteer labor and low-cost materials, that make home repairs affordable.


Projects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Exterior painting
  • Roof repairs or soffit/fascia work
  • Stairs, handrails, wheelchair ramps
  • Deck repairs
  • Doors
  • Window repairs

Applications for ABWK are made available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please download the application below and submit it for our committee to review.
