Led by founding President Max Tanguay-Colucci and Vice President Melody Desmond, the Waterbury Arts Magnet School (WAMS) Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter successfully carried out Habitat for Humanity of Greater Waterbury’s first project for its “A Brush with Kindness” program.

   In order to better serve the community, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Waterbury has launched a partnership opportunity for low-income homeowners in need of assistance with exterior home aesthetics and minor repair.  With the help of volunteers, the “A Brush with Kindness” program partners with low-income homeowners to restore their homes so they can continue to live in a safe, decent and affordable home. This program not only helps families and communities in need, but it helps to encourage neighborhood stability and confidence.

   “A Brush with Kindness” has a scope of work that includes exterior painting, landscaping, clean-up and minor, non-structural repair.  The program is a partnership that relies on the Homeowner’s involvement and participation, as well as the help of volunteers.  Home repairs are led by trained crew leaders and completed by Habitat for Humanity volunteers.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Waterbury is a nonprofit organization that works side by side with volunteers and partner families to build simple and decent homes.

    Through the work of Habitat affiliates, thousands of low-income families have found new hope in the form of affordable housing. Habitat for Humanity brings together churches, community groups and others to build homes for deserving families and to make decent housing a matter of conscience.  Today, Habitat for Humanity, an ecumenical Christian ministry, has built more than 200,000 houses, sheltering more than 1,000,000 people in more than 3,000 communities worldwide.
