Do you or a neighbor need A Brush With Kindness?

A Brush with Kindness is a program that helps preserve homeownership by partnering with homeowners struggling to restore and maintain a safe and decent place to live. When basic expenses exceed income month after month, home maintenance is the usual casualty. Years of deferred maintenance can cause a downward spiral of home deterioration and unsafe living conditions. 

  • Are you living in challenging circumstances, which have created issues that are beyond what you can handle on your own?
  • Are you struggling to keep your home in livable condition?
  • Have you had to choose between paying for food, medication, taxes, and basic utilities?
  • Are you facing city code violations or homeowner insurance cancellation due to the condition of your home?

Eligibility Requirements:
  • Must complete Homeowner Application
  • Family income must be between 20% to 50% of the Tri-Cities Area Median Income (AMI)
  • Homes must be owner-occupied
  • Scope of work must match program resources
  • All able-bodied homeowners and residents of the home are required to work alongside volunteers
  • Homeowners should be cooperative partners with staff and volunteers

Once a homeowner's eligibility is determined and their application is accepted, Tri-Cities Habitat's A Brush with Kindness program provides caring volunteer groups who come alongside and assist homeowners in completing minor repairs, painting, and other home maintenance.
