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. Habitat for Humanity Riverside partners with people in Corona, Eastvale, El Cerrito, Highgrove, Home Gardens, Jurupa Valley, Moreno Valley, Norco, Riverside, and Woodcrest to help them build or improve a place they can call home. To find the Habitat for Humanity that serves your area, click here.


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!).
