What is Rock the Block?
Rock the Block brings people together to lift up neighborhoods in Greater Cincinnati. Twice a year, hundreds of volunteers complete hands-on beautification projects, exterior home repairs, and home maintenance work.
Small changes make a big impact, especially for homeowners who experience financial or physical barriers to home maintenance and repair. Rock the Block brings to life the adage “many hands make light work.” Volunteers work side-by-side with homeowners over the course of a day, and we see a big impact when this is done across an entire neighborhood. See our impact in 2021.
How it Happens
An Investment in Community
Rock the Block is an extension of Habitat’s neighborhood revitalization efforts. Neighborhood revitalization is a collaborative approach to improve the quality of life for all residents in a neighborhood. Habitat invests in neighborhoods that often experience disinvestment. As we work towards a world where everyone has a decent place to live, we know that affordable homeownership is only part of the solution.
