Our Home Repairs & Rehab program (A Brush With Kindness), provides a low-cost solution for exterior home repairs for low-income homeowners.

Types of Projects:

  • Grading/landscaping to improve drainage or accessibility
  • Exterior repairs to roofs, doors, windows, porches, etc.
  • Painting and/or siding repair
  • Minor structural repairs
  • Installation of handicap accessible ramps and railings.

Projects range from $500 to $13,000.

How We Do It:

Habitat selects partner families based on income, need, and willingness to partner. Leeward 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 made by the homeowners are placed in a revolving fund to help A Brush With Kindness serve others in need.
