Habitat for Humanity- Brush with Kindness
Tulsa Habitat for Humanity kicked off a new program serving Tulsa-area homeowners. A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) helps low-income families maintain their homes through projects like improvements, repairs and accessibility on the exterior of their homes and took place from Thursday, May 2 through Sunday, May 5.
These projects help homeowners preserve their overall home exteriors while revitalizing the already-established neighborhood. In the end, the work of ABWK volunteers helps families live in safe and well-maintained homes and supports the preservation of affordable housing inventory. Additionally, the program helps re-establish and maintain community connections.
Tulsa Habitat for Humanity adopted the historic Crutchfield Neighborhood in Tulsa. On the afternoon of May 3, Crafton Tull had a group of 9 people, which included Blake Cottey, Bonnie Fentem, Brady Watson, Courtney Borgard, DeeDee Carlile, Elizabeth Ingraham, Justin Sack, Laura Finley and Michal Biery. The group was broken up into two teams, one of which helped on a home that required soffit and trim repairs, as well as full exterior painting, and the other team assisted with fence removal and repairs, roofing repairs, as well as some landscaping and yard clean-up.
