A Brush With Kindness

Cheboygan County Habitat for Humanity started a housing repair program last fall. The program was a new experiment. We call it A Brush with Kindness. It is part of our service to help qualified homeowners obtain low-cost repairs on the exteriors of their residences. These repairs may cover far more areas than one thinks. Do your fences, porches, stairs, roofs, doors, or garages need fixing? We can do this outside work as long as you qualify.

Is your home’s paint peeling or siding missing? We can find the volunteers to do the job. Do you know of elderly neighbors who need their yards tidied? Check with us.

Here is how A Brush with Kindness works. The homeowner pays for materials, and CCHfH will provide the labor and expertise. We might even be able to clue you in on a low-interest loan at a local bank.

And yes, you have to fill out a form telling us who you are and what work needs to be done. To apply, get a form at the Habitat Office, 102 South Main Street, Cheboygan or phone (231) 597-4663, and we will mail it to you.
