A Brush With Kindness
Our “Brush With Kindness” or "BWK" helps low-income homeowners struggling to maintain the exterior and interior of their homes, allowing them to reclaim their homes with pride and dignity. It works in conjunction with our existing core program enabling us to serve more families while increasing volunteer opportunities and expanding our base of sponsors.
BWK helps revitalize the appearance of neighborhoods, strengthens connections within the community, and helps preserve affordable housing stock.
BWK services are relatively small projects consisting of exterior work such as painting, patching, minor repair, landscaping, or replacement of materials for the purposes of maintaining good and sound condition. Other types of projects could be considered as Weatherization such as interior and exterior work, replacement of windows and doors, caulking/foaming cracks and gaps, insulating openings, attics, crawl spaces, and insulating walls. Still other types of projects could be considered as Critical Home Repair such as extensive siding and trim repair/replacement, major roof repair or replacement, porch or wheelchair ramp construction, installation of heating, electrical, or plumbing, floor and wall replacement, and foundation repair.
Estimated completion time could range from 1 day to 1 week or more. Inspections will be made by experienced Project Managers and assessments will be completed and prioritized based on review and condition of the home
