Freshen up the homes of area seniors and other low-income homeowners. Our Brush with Kindness repair program is painting apartments at the Brookfield Housing Senior living complex, and at occupant-owned homes of area low-income residents for a fraction of the cost. Our mission is to help people stay in their homes and to do preventive maintenance. Small jobs are our speciality. Volunteers for all kinds of repair work are needed on an ongoing basis.
