Click here for a Brush With Kindness Application


Brush With Kindness is a program that our local Habitat has done this past year completing five different projects. These projects are especially for Senior Citizens who may be physically unable to do around their home such as trimming bushes, trees, raking leaves, washing windows, weeding flower beds, etc.  The Homeowner pays for the supplies and we have volunteers who will do the physical labor. 

The application is on our website www.hfhmerced.org or you can call us and we’ll mail you one. 209-726-0850.










Unfortunately, the Pest Inspection exposed beetles and termites for a cost of $16,000 to repair, so we had to cancel the purchase of the Rehab house .  We were disappointed but glad we found out before we got into the repairs and discovered a huge expense.  Prayers for another Rehab house or lot to build on wouild be appreciated.  Check out the latest news on our website:  www.hfhmerced.org or our facebook page.  Check it out!  Call us at 726-0850.

Brush with Kindness applications are available online and we will be doing more projects as we have volunteers available.  Homeowners, who aren’t physically able to do small projects, should call us at 726-0850.  Don’t hesitate to call – this is a great opportunity!!




at the Rossotti Center, 1045 W. 25th St. next to Applegate Zoo.  Any family interested in owning a Habitat Home should attend to see if they qualify.  Follow the signs for parking around back of the zoo.  Check our website for qualifications. www.hfhmerced.org.


Our ReStore project fell through; the owner decided he wanted to sell the property instead of lease it to us.  We keep looking for another site, if you know of any place suitable with approximately 6000 sq ft in Atwater or Merced, please call us at 209-726-0850 and you can get involved. There’s many opportunities in researching, marketing, publicity, shelving, connecting with possible donors.

If you have some expertise to share and would like an application so an interview can be arranged to be considered to be a board member,  please check our website hfhmerced.org or call 726-0850 and have one mailed to you.    We are looking for someone interested in fundraising, computer skills and legal expertise.  Each member of our board is responsible for a task, so it is a working board and together we work as a team to accomplish the goals we have agreed upon.


If you would like to visit one of our board meetings to see if this is what God has planned for you to do, please call me to add you to our agenda.
