It has been several years since we incorporated the "Brush with Kindness" projects into our organization. These projects are done to help those who need not necessarily a new living situation, but an improvement to their current home. This year, we are pleased to be helping a Springfield resident in need of roof repair to prevent leaking in her home. The roof renewal is a great undertaking that requires a professional tradesman. The home improvement project will be a relief for the homeowner, as well as a rewarding project for our chapter of Habitat for Humanity. As with all things regarding Habitat for Humanity, this is a hand up, not a hand out. The homeowner will still shoulder the responsibility of the payment. Donors like you help our organization assist these homeowners by giving them affordable payment plans. Lend your neighbor a hand up with us.
