PROJECT OVERVIEW: Habitat NYC’s A Brush with Kindness program consists of multi-day projects of painting, planting, or doing light “fix-up” work in all five boroughs at community centers, which have limited funds to pay for refurbishments.

Brush with Kindness is a natural extension of Habitat NYC’s housing ministry, allowing our organization to ensure overall neighborhood revitalization and that low-income and very low-income New Yorkers who might not qualify for homeownership have beautiful, well-maintained homes and communities, whether “home” be public housing, a shelter or a rented apartment.
