The Mission
A Brush with Kindness seeks to bring volunteers together to live out their faith and values through helping
low-income homeowners restore their homes so they can continue to live in a safe, decent and affordable home.

The Vision
Habitat has the opportunity to establish A Brush with Kindness in our community as a way to connect volunteers
and their resources with opportunities to live out their faith and values through restoring homes of at-risk homeowners.

The Problem
A Brush with Kindness began in response to an overwhelming need in neighborhoods to help low-income homeowners
who because of age, disability or family circumstance struggle to care for their home.
After years of deferred maintenance, homes fall into disrepair and consequently fall into a
downward spiral of code citations, loss of homeowner insurance and ultimately in mortgage
foreclosure that impact not just individual homeowners, but entire neighborhoods.
A Brush with Kindness helps homeowners avoid issues that can lead to losing their home.

The Solution
A Brush with Kindness relies on churches, businesses and community organizations that contribute volunteers,
finances and materials to effectively serve homeowners in need.


Don’t hesitate to call – this is a great opportunity!!
