Habitat Housing Programs
A "Brush with Kindness" is a home preservation program that provides services such as painting, landscaping, and minor repair services for lower income homeowners in need. A "Brush with Kindness" may also include things such as gutter work, stairway repair, brush and tree removal, sidewalk work, or building an access ramp.
We help homeowners impacted by age, disability and family circumstances, who may be struggling to maintain the exterior of their homes, reclaim their homes with pride and dignity.
Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, we build simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families.
Habitat houses are then sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable loans. The homeowners monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat houses.
This program breaks the cycle of poverty and poor living conditions by building strength, stability and self-reliance through homeownership.
