Paint and Repair Projects
Since 2009 Tahlequah Area Habitat for Humanity (TAHFH) has completed a total of 27 painting and repair projects called A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) and Critical Home Repair (CHR).  ABWK is an exterior painting project and CHR does repairs that affect the health and safety of the homeowner.  The Valspar Paint Corporation has donated the paint we use for both new construction and ABWK.  Other repairs to the outside of houses have been done, such as patching or replacing roofs and repairing porches and windows.  This year we are continuing these efforts through donations of time and money.  For example, the Tahlequah Community Foundation funded a repair to the porch of an elderly lady, and employees of Fairfield Marriott in Muskogee helped paint the home of one of our homeowners.

Habitat ReStore

The TAHFH  ReStore is continually on the up-swing.  We met our budget for the past fiscal year with the help of all those individuals and businesses that generously donated items to the store.  A big THANK YOU to our volunteers who give of their time to help organize, clean, display items, and assist our customers on Saturdays.  We are reaching out to the community and all of Cherokee County to help us spread the word about donating furniture, doors, windows, hardware, tools, televisions, housewares, cell phones, etc.  We ask that all donated items be in good working order, and remember that your donations are tax-deductible.  The ReStore is located on the corner of First and College Avenue in the west end of the building, and the Store phone number is 918-822-7201.

ReStore Hours:
