Yvonne’s Story

Many low income home owners can’t afford home maintenance. 

What once was affordable may have become unaffordable due to reasons unemployment, expanding family or rising food and utility costs. For Yvonne, the programme lifted the burden of a home with leaks, mould and rot.  “You call it  ‘A Brush with Kindness’ and that really is what it is. The overwhelming feeling is kindness. That was the beauty of it all.
