Home Repairs

 A Brush With Kindness is a Home Repair program for owner-occupied homes. Due to a series of grants provided by American House, BAE Systems, Shelby Community Foundation, Thrivent Financial and others, we are able to mobilize our volunteers to repair or replace a number of items that the homeowner would otherwise not be able to fix. Projects could include: handicap ramp installation, painting, trim work, porch/deck repairs, door/window replacement and more.
