A Brush With Kindness Home Repairs
A Brush With Kindness Exterior Home Repair Program -- A small repair can make a BIG difference!

Habitat is looking for caring volunteers to assist with our Home Repair Program. Individual volunteers and small groups of volunteers are a perfect fit for this program and no construction skills are required.

Habitat's Home Repair Program helps low-income people by providing low-cost home repairs with the help of volunteers. These repairs make a tremendous impact on local homeowners and are vital to keeping homes safe and accessible for years to come.

Habitat for Humanity of Central Lane works to eliminate sub-standard housing by assisting low-income homeowners, including veterans, seniors, and disabled homeowners with minor exterior home repairs. Typical projects include exterior painting, accessibility ramps, gutter repair, fence repair, deck and stair repair, and overgrown bush removal.

Habitat volunteers work under the supervision of a trained site supervisor to help accomplish these repairs. We work Thursday - Saturday on projects throughout the area and provide all needed tools, safety equipment, and know-how. This opportunity is a great chance to give back to your community and to learn some handy skills.

Mission Statement

Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Description

Habitat for Humanity, of Central Lane was founded in 1990 as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. We are deeply committed to the belief that all God’s people deserve a decent, affordable place to live. Working with individuals and families, volunteers and dedicated supporters, we build homes, communities and hope.

With our home construction program, low-income families invest in their future with a lot of hard work or "sweat equity." Families complete a minimum of 300-500 "sweat equity" hours (depending on family configuration) prior to moving in. After the house is built with volunteers, our families purchase their home with a low-interest, no-profit loan. Their monthly mortgage payments cycle directly back into the mission of Habitat, allowing us to provide the same life-changing experience for another family. Each Partner Family receives continued support through education and mentorship.

We also take great pride in the preservation of our existing community neighborhoods. Our Home Repair program, A Brush With Kindness, works with low-income veterans, elderly and/or disabled homeowners in need of minor exterior home repairs. By bringing these homes back to a decent, livable standard, our families are able to stay at home in a comfortable, safe, familiar environment.
