Brush with Kindness/Critical Repair Programs

Our Brush with Kindness/Critical Repair programs focus on exterior minor repairs that make a
home safer, healthier and more accessible. We have built several access ramps as well as
repaired steps and porches and added handrails.

Our Veterans program, supported by funds from the Turner House, is designed to help
veterans with their housing needs under our Brush with Kindness/Critical Repairs program.
Non-veterans can also apply to these programs if they can provide funding for materials.
Applicants must:

  • Have lived in Northern Berkshire, or Stamford, VT for at least one full year prior to
  • application date.
  • Own their own home.
  • Earn no more than 80% of the Area Median Income for Northern Berkshire.
  • (Non-veterans) Be able to fund the costs of materials.
  • (Veterans) Be Honorably Discharged.
