Tulsa Habitat for Humanity’s A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) is a nation-wide program serving low- to moderate-income homeowners who may be struggling to maintain the exteriors of their homes. Groups of volunteers and contractors, under the supervision of Habitat for Humanity, provide free labor and materials to revitalize homes and communities.

ABWK is part of Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (NRI).  This initiative is a holistic approach, assisting communities as well as families.  It is designed to improve the appearance of the neighborhood, encourage connections within the community and, most importantly, help preserve affordable housing stock.

A Brush with Kindness focuses on exterior home repairs, including:

  • Siding
  • Roofing
  • Painting
  • Landscaping and yard clean-up
  • Minor repairs
  • Windows and doors
  • Fencing

To qualify, applicants must:

  • Live in an owner-occupied home (renters are not eligible) in the City of Tulsa
  • Have income below 80% of annual median income, as determined by HUD, and be able to document income
  • Be willing to partner with Habitat for Humanity and contribute an agreed upon amount of sweat equity to the project*

 

*Sweat equity hours will be in performance of tasks that are within the homeowners abilities.
