The ABWK Blitz in Vinton is scheduled for June 19-23, 2017.

What is ABWK?

A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) is a program of Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity that helps limited-income homeowners by offering affordable exterior home improvements. Volunteer teams work to improve the condition of homes by painting, landscaping and performing minor exterior repairs at minimal cost to homeowners who would be unable to complete home repairs on their own. Able-bodied homeowners are encouraged to work alongside the volunteers in a cooperative effort. This neighborhood-based program is for homeowners earning 55 percent or less of the area median income.

Special thanks to our generous supporters that help make this possible!
