A BRUSH WITH KINDNESS
A Habitat for Humanity
Housing Repair Program
Since September 2010, Habitat for Humanity has been accepting applications for a housing repair
program called "
A Brush with Kindness" (ABWK). This is a nation wide program serving low-income
families who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes. The program is aimed at providing exterior
painting, minor exterior repairs, landscaping, and exterior cleanup to low-income homeowners in need.
The work is done by volunteers who use donated materials whenever possible.
The homeowner must meet basic Habitat criteria for selection, including need, willingness
to partner, and ability to repay a no interest loan. Each individual project selected by
Brown County Habitat will have a $500.00 cap. Payments made by Partner families are
placed in a revolving fund to help "
A Brush with Kindness" serve others in need.
“Helping people repair and maintain their homes fits seamlessly with Habitat’s core
mission of making decent affordable housing available to low-income families”. The
program is designed to encourage connections within the community and to help
preserve affordable housing stock.
Applications may be picked up at:

  • Community Action Program (CAP) office on
168 S. Jefferson (Salvation Army Bldg.) Nashville, IN
Office Hours: Mon - Fri. 8am - 4:30pm; Closed 12-1pm

  • Requested by mail from Habitat at P.O. Box 260 Nashville, IN 47448
