A Brush with Kindness ensures that families live in safe and well-maintained homes. Habitat for Humanity's A Brush with Kindness is part of the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative. This initiative is a holistic approach, assisting communities as well as families. It is designed to revitalize the appearance of the neighborhood, encourages connections within the community, and most importantly, helps preserve affordable housing stock.
Brush with Kindness serves low-income homeowners and focuses on exterior home repairs, including painting, minor repairs, landscaping, and clean-up. Groups of volunteers work alongside the homeowner to revitalize the appearance of a home. Families' eligibility is based on their need, ability to pay and willingness to partner with Habitat. Payments made by the partner family are placed into a revolving fund to help Habitat for Humanity's A Brush with Kindness serve others in need.
As part of our Neighborhood Revitalization, Alachua Habitat is partnering with the Community Redevelopment Agency to complete 10 ABWK's in the next year.
