Habitat for Humanity Lakeside is pleased to announce its new A Brush with Kindness initiative! Habitat for Humanity Lakeside will now begin repairing homes in partnership with qualified, low-income homeowners. The new housing repair program called A Brush with Kindness is aimed at providing painting, minor exterior repairs, landscaping, wheelchair ramp building, and exterior clean-up to low-income homeowners in need.
Habitat for Humanity Lakeside’s A Brush with Kindness has a goal to serve low-income homeowners who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes. The work is done by volunteers who use donated materials whenever possible. The homeowner, as is with any Habitat Homeowner, must demonstrate that they fit the general criteria of need, ability to pay a no-interest loan, and willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity Lakeside. Payments made by the partner family are placed in a revolving fund to help A Brush with Kindness serve others in need.
“This initiative gives us a great opportunity to help more families in need, as well help revitalize the appearance of whole neighborhoods, encourage connections within the community, and most importantly, help preserve affordable housing in Sheboygan and Ozaukee Counties.” said Dennis Ketterman, Habitat Lakeside’s ABWK representative, “Helping people repair and maintain their homes fits in seamlessly with Habitat’s core mission of making decent, affordable housing available to low-income families.”
