Habitat for Humanity - "A Brush with Kindness" - June 2010
The mission of ABWK is to enhance and beautify neighborhoods in which Austin Habitat for Humanity builds homes by offering affordable exterior home improvements to qualifying non-Habitat, low-income homeowners. The improvements are need based and our work is in collaboration with the Basic Needs Coalition and the City of Austin.
In June 2010, TASSCC volunteers worked at the home of Shirley Cairo. Shirley is the homeowner at the Turnstone A Brush with Kindness project. She is simply great! She is a single head of house hold with two young children (adopted), has two grandchildren she is caring for, and was also a foster parent for a long time. Work to be completed on the house included: ...New back door, replaced master window, new roof, all new siding and trim, repainted the exterior, replaced fence that faces the street, built a kiddy gate, new HVAC and flooring throughout. The TASSCC volunteers working on installing and painting new siding and trim as well as building the new gates.
