Also happening over the weekend, Habitat for Humanity of Southern California completed another A Brush with Kindness home repair project. Volunteers came together to complete home repairs for senior homeowner, Phil.
Habitat's A Brush with Kindness program works to help low-income or fixed-income homeowners to restore their homes to be a safe and decent place to live, through minor exterior repairs. The program provides materials and volunteer labor to make improvements to a house affordable and possible.
Able-bodied homeowners work alongside Habitat's volunteers as part of their "sweat equity", which is central to Habitat's home building program. Through this program, homeowners are able to regain the pride of home-ownership and maintain the value of their homes.
A Brush with Kindness complements Habitat for Humanity's construction programs that bring decent and affordable homes to low-income families. All partner families must meet Habitat's income requirements, as well as show a need for crucial exterior repairs and a willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity.
