Golden Crescent Habitat’s neighborhood revitalization program - BRUSH UP GOLDEN CRESCENT - helps preserve homeownership by partnering with homeowners struggling to maintain their home.  

Hurricane Harvey Relief

In partnership with Ashley Homestore in Victoria, Brush Up will be doing minor repairs to homes damaged by Hurricane Harvey. A portion of furniture sales at Ashley Homestore from now until October 12 will be donated to the Brush Up program. They also are offering free delivery and free furniture removal.

About Brush Up

When basic expenses exceed income month after month, home maintenance is the usual casualty. Years of deferred maintenance can cause a downward spiral of home deterioration and unsafe living conditions.

By making minor repairs to houses, homeowners are able to continue to safely live in their homes.

Since 2016, Golden Crescent Habitat has repaired 21 homes in Victoria and Lavaca counties.

Why Brush Up Golden Crescent is Important:

1. Ramps and rails provide safer entry into the houses
2. Improves health for homeowners
3. Paint protects the outside of the house
4. Long-term house sustainability for homeowners
5. Brings the community together

Brush Up Helps Homeowners Who: 

1. Demonstrate a need for assistance
2. Have an income below 80% of Victoria County median income
3. Own a house in the five-county Golden Crescent Habitat service area - DeWitt, Goliad, Jackson, Lavaca, Victoria
4. Complete five hours of sweat equity, such as picking up trash
