Habitat for Humanity of Tuscarawas Valley does not build houses FOR families; we facilitate a partnership among families who demonstrate need, the ability to pay the mortgage, and a willingness to partner in the construction of their home. This partnership also engages community supporters who join the families in the home building process and provide both financial and in-kind support for building supplies and materials. Homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor, or “sweat equity,” into building their Habitat house and they pay back a no-profit, no-interest mortgage.
Habitat for Humanity of Tuscarawas Valley is committed to the development of decent, affordable homes. We also are committed to work with partner families to insure that the experience of long term home ownership is positive and successful.
The A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) program is an exterior home preservation service that
offers painting, landscaping, weather stripping, and minor repair services for homeowners in
Like the traditional Habitat model, ABWK partners with low-income homeowners impacted by
age, disability, and family circumstances, who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes.
