Rock the Block is an extension of our work to revitalize neighborhoods one family, one block, one street at a time. Residents and volunteers team up for a one-day blitz to repair, refresh, and restore a neighborhood where Habitat is currently building.

Rock the Block events are an extension of Habitat for Humanity’s neighborhood revitalization efforts. The emphasis of this program is to help homeowners in specific neighborhoods with minor exterior home repairs such as painting and landscaping. While this year’s Rock the Block will serve up to 15 selected exterior home repair host sites, all neighbors are encouraged to participate. Rock the Block calls all neighbors, homeowners and renters, to be outside together, working in the yard, maintaining their homes, and having fun. In addition to exterior home repair projects, volunteers will support a neighborhood trash pick-up effort. Up to four large dumpsters will be available for trash drop-off. Neighbors are welcome to use of the dumpsters for trash removal (dumpsters cannot accept large appliances, hazardous chemicals and tires). For more information, please contact Habitat at 513-482-5614.
For any other questions, please contact Jennifer Kephart with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati at 513-482-5644 or email at Jen.Kephart@habitatcincinnati.org.
Thank you for the support from our partners in West College Hill!
