A Brush with Kindness Project

Help us raise $5,000 for a small family in Sheridan living in a home requiring critical repairs.

ABWK program began in 2010 as the result of a merger with the local Christmas in April/Rebuilding Together Chapter in Sheridan.

The ABWK program focuses on repairs that ensure the warmth, safety, and accessibility needs of HUD Income qualified homeowners in Sheridan County. 

The ABWK program receives no funding, and these projects are completed at no cost to the applicants.

 About the Family: 
The applicant for this project is a single mother to two young children. This family is living in a small house that is in need of critical repairs to make it a safe place to live. There are concerns about the electrical, broken windows, and exposed subfloor throughout the home. This house was recently purchased by this applicant, after having saved up enough money to finally own a home. Prior to purchasing this home, this family was homeless. 

Together, we can make this house a home. A home that is warm, and a house that is safe. 

The cost of this project is going to be $5,000. Will you help this family today?
