A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) is an exterior painting and small home repair program for low-income or disabled homeowners because they deserve to continue to live proudly in their homes. Homeowners qualify for ABWK based on need and feasibility of the project. This program is not restricted to just Habitat families, anyone that fits the requirements can apply for a project.
ABWK helps revitalize the appearance of neighborhoods, strengthens connections within the community, and helps preserve affordable housing stock. The Brush with Kindness program offers relatively small repair projects consisting of exterior work such as painting, patching, minor repair, or replacement of materials. Due to these restrictions, ABWK is not meant to be used for a full home remodel, only small home repairs.
To qualify for ABWK, the homeowner must be unable to afford to have the work done or be unable to do it themselves. The project also must be able to be completed with volunteer labor and donated material. Before the project starts, Habitat for Humanity SWMT asks for a minimal $50 fee from the homeowner to help cover costs associated with the project.
Estimated completion time could range from 1 day to 1 week or more. Experienced Project Managers will make inspections. Following approval, projects will be prioritized based on review and condition of the home.
