Preserving home exteriors and revitalizing neighborhoods
A Brush With Kindness
A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) is an exterior home preservation program that offers painting, landscaping and minor repair services to eligible homeowners so they can continue to live in safe, decent homes for years to come. Projects include painting, landscaping, weatherization and minor repair services.
How Does The Program Work
Gwinnett Habitat selects partner families based on income, need and willingness to partner. Gwinnett Habitat uses volunteer labor and donated materials to keep costs low and take no profit for their services. A no-interest loan is made to the homeowner to cover the cost of the project. Payments are placed in a revolving fund to help A Brush with Kindness serve others in need. This program would not be possible without the generosity of Valspar, the cofounder and underwriter of the A Brush with Kindness program.Take this as an opportunity to attract a visitor so that he would want to know more about your products and services.
Why does Gwinnett Habitat for Humanity offer these exterior maintenance services?
- Families live in safe and well-maintained homes
- Neighborhoods are revitalized
- Community connections are made
- Affordable housing inventory is preserved
