Rock The Block - Home is the Rock
October 10, 2020
As a result of COVID-19, 300+ million people have been asked to stay at home through “safer at home” orders. Everyone has been forced to consider the fundamental importance of home — of having safe, decent and affordable shelter. But many of our homes have become so much more – offices, schools, restaurants, and playgrounds. Home is Our Rock. But families in homes that are not safe and secure are on shaky ground. Economic and health risks are many, to say nothing of creature comforts like high-speed internet and meal delivery. To support and advocate for more affordable and safe living for all our neighbors, we are adapting our popular Rock the Block event this fall to create Home is the Rock!
Home is the Rock
This year we are bringing together past Rock the Block partners, as well as new partners to Rock the Block across our service area! Pick the neighborhood nearest you and help us Rock the Block!
