About A Brush with Kindness

ABWK helps low-income homeowners who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes, allowing them to reclaim their homes with pride and dignity.

ABWK works in conjunction with your affiliate’s core building program, enabling you to serve more families, increase opportunities for volunteers and expand your base of sponsors. Most importantly, ABWK is part of Habitat’s broader community development strategy called the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative.

NRI is designed to pursue Habitat for Humanity’s strategic imperative of helping to transform and strengthen communities so that those who reside in them will be able to live and grow into all that God intends for them.

ABWK helps revitalize the appearance of the neighborhood, strengthens connections within the community and helps preserve affordable housing stock.

A Brush with Kindness includes painting, landscaping, yard cleanup and minor repairs that create significant exterior improvements on owner-occupied homes. These projects usually take one to three days to complete.
