Brush with Kindness Program (BWK)
Starting in 2021, L-C Valley Habitat for Humanity is offering the Brush with Kindness program for qualified and approved homeowners in the L-C Valley, so they can continue to live in safe, decent homes for years to come. The BWK program is a Habitat program that mobilizes volunteers to provide exterior home maintenance assistance to low-income homeowners.
The goal of the Brush with Kindness program is to serve families living in substandard housing by mobilizing volunteers in a meaningful community-building effort. As a result, homeowners have the opportunity to experience a stronger neighborhood and improve their quality of life. Volunteers have the opportunity to make a tangible difference in the lives of others and to build teamwork among co-workers, friends and family. Communities are often revitalized through the investment of time and resources in the refurbishment of these homes.
Habitat’s Brush with Kindness program would not be possible without the generosity of our program sponsors:
