Habitat’s Brush With Kindness (ABWK)Program is part of a nationwide effort through Habitat for Humanity to help low-income homeowners maintain the exterior of their homes. This program is part of Habitat for Humanity International’s broader community development strategy known as Neighborhood Revitalization Programs.
Groups of volunteers work alongside the homeowner to revitalize a home’s exterior. A Brush with Kindness allows low-income homeowners to live independently by making home repairs affordable. Services provided to these homes include:
- Roof repair or replacement
- Repainting the exterior of the home
- Repairing minor exterior problems
- Windows & insulation
Habitat Collin County will select a homeowner who has demonstrated financial need and a willingness to partner with the program. Although Habitat has a set income level for selected families, this number is flexible. Homeowners with an existing mortgage must have no outstanding payments, and they must have up-to-date homeowner’s insurance and taxes.
Homeowners will be presented with a scope of work outline before the project begins. An affordable cost will then be agreed upon and repaid by the homeowner at a loan rate based on income. Payments will be set at an affordable amount.
- Applicants must own the home where the repairs will be made.
- Applicants must occupy the home as their primary residence.
- Applicants must be current on all property taxes.
