A Brush with Kindness

Habitat for Humanity Riverside’s A Brush with Kindness program is an exterior home preservation service that offers painting, landscaping, and exterior minor repair services for homeowners in need.
A Brush with Kindness helps low-income homeowners impacted by age, disability and family circumstances, who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes, to reclaim their homes with pride and dignity.


A Brush with Kindness ensures that families live in safe and well-maintained homes. The program is designed to revitalize the appearance of the neighborhood, encourage connections within the community, and most importantly, help preserve affordable housing stock.

See how a group of volunteers can change someone’s life in half a day (1 minute for you!).
