The WAHFH ReStore is now open Wednesdays to Saturdays, 10:00-4:00.
A Brush with Kindness is a nation-wide effort to serve low-income homeowners who struggle to maintain their homes by focusing on minor home repair services such as painting, minor household repairs, landscaping, and exterior clean-up. Volunteers work alongside the homeowner and team leaders try to make the experience of helping others a positive one. A Brush with Kindness is a partner to Habitat’s core building program. It allows us to serve a different population than we currently serve, yet follows the same basic tenets for eligibility (need, ability to pay, willingness to partner). It is a direct fit with HFHI’s strategic plan to exponentially increase the number of families served.
A Brush with Kindness uses volunteers, donated materials and no interest loans to makes repairs affordable, helping low-income homeowners continue to live independently and securely in their homes. It is part of Habitat’s broader community development strategy called the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative. The Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative is designed to intentionally pursue our strategic imperative of helping to transform and strengthen communities. It is a holistic approach that revitalizes the appearance of the neighborhood, encourages connections within the community, and most importantly, helps preserve affordable housing stock.
A Brush With Kindness is available to families living within the 13 communities of Waterville Area Habitat For Humanity's service area and is dependent upon volunteer availability. WAHFH does not do any type of work on mobile homes.
