Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/ Greater Worcester A Brush With Kindness and Critical Home Repair Program

Habitat for Humanity’s A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) is an exterior home preservation service that offers painting, landscaping, and minor repair services for qualified individuals. Homeowners are selected based on income, need, and ability to repay the cost of materials used. Projects often include raking and bagging up leaves, trimming hedges, composting of a vegetable garden and general outdoor repair

Habitat for Humanity’s Critical Home Repair Program is an outreach initiative that seeks to provide a wide range of opportunities for low income and military families, focusing on exterior home repairs to address health, life and safety/code issues.

Repairs may include:

  • Changing or repairing materials or components (i.e., siding or roofs)
  • Modifications for accessibility (i.e., adding ramps)
  • Repair or installation of exterior landing, stairs and railings for safe entrance and exit from a home

Youth and adults ages 16 and up are invited to participate in these efforts.

For more information about the specific dates on which help is needed, please see Upcoming Events.
