Habitat is looking for participants for A Brush with Kindness home repair Program


Fri, Oct 26th, 2012
Posted in All Arts & Culture

Are you a low-income homeowner? Does your house need exterior paint? Does your yard need new landscaping or fence repairs? Do you need a wheel chair ramp?

If you (or someone you know) answered yes to any of the above you may qualify for Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties’ A Brush with Kindness home repair program.

A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) assists homeowners impacted by age, disability and family circumstances who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes. Our aim is to allow these homeowners to reclaim the pride and dignity of homeownership by offering an affordable means of exterior home improvement to maintain the value of the home. ABWK joins forces with corporate partners, community organizations, and churches to repair, repaint, and landscape homes.

A Brush with Kindness focuses primarily on neighborhood revitalization through minor exterior maintenance, limited landscaping and limited exterior painting projects. Minor exterior repairs are offered at the discretion of Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties. A small program fee may be necessary to help defray the cost of materials. Family income and scope of work to be done will be used to determine the program fee.

Currently, we are looking for homeowners to receive help from the A Brush with Kindness program in the upcoming project year 2013-2014. There are limited spots available. If you would like to receive help or want more information, please contact Habitat for Humanity Winona Fillmore County at 507-457-0003 or 507-459-4199 for Fillmore County. Application Deadline is December 1, 2012.

A Brush with Kindness is underwritten by a grant from Valspar, Habitat’s National Paint Partner.
