Every family should have the opportunity to affordably maintain and preserve their home. But many situations can create barriers to keep up with repairs, including unexpected life events or loss of income. Families are stronger when they live in safe and stable homes. That’s why more than 1,800 local families have partnered with Twin Cities Habitat on home repairs through A Brush with Kindness.
Our home repair program utilizes a combination of volunteers and contractors to help homeowners accomplish the following repairs:
A Brush with Kindness repairs are affordable. You have two repayment options.
1) 2-year, monthly repayment plan that is customized for your affordability
2) 10-year forgivable mortgage, no monthly payments
New applications are accepted during a limited time each year. If you submit an eligible application, staff will visit your home to understand your repair needs. Habitat staff, volunteers and/or contractors will complete your repairs within one year of your application. Please check back this summer for more information about when applications will be made available for projects beginning in Winter 2017-2018.
Applications will be available for families living in the Minneapolis and St. Paul promise zones on June 1, 2017 for home repairs completed during 2018. Please call us for an application at that time.
Please call 612-788-8169 with any questions you might have about the program or the application process.
