The City of Tulsa along with Tulsa Habitat for Humanity, the Crutchfield Neighborhood Association and Hilti teamed up for a four-day revitalization project, “A Brush with Kindness”.

Joe and Ana Majia received the keys to their new home on Saturday which was built by Habitat for Humanity. The couple tells FOX23 they are grateful to the volunteers who helped them construct a home that they could call their own.

“It’s very exciting,” said Joe, “for the first times in our life we are going to own our own house.’

The Majias family will now repay a zero-interest mortgage over the next twenty years.

A Brush of Kindness project wasn’t just about building new homes but revamping the ones that already exist.

Chair for the Habitat Humanity International Board of Directors, Elizabeth Crossman, tells FOX23 that the volunteers were assigned to help with exterior and yard work in the Crutchfield neighborhood.

“It’s the city coming to help, the neighbors coming to help and we are seeing revitalization in the area,” said Crossman.

Volunteers worked alongside homeowners to help paint exteriors, landscape and clean up yards in the Crutchfield Neighborhood.

Since 1988, the Tulsa Habitat for Humanity has built homes for 280 families.
