Rock the Block extends Habitat for Humanity’s neighborhood revitalization efforts. This program helps homeowners in specific neighborhoods with minor exterior home repairs such as painting and landscaping. Rock the Block invites 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 several community projects for the school and village. For more information, please contact Habitat at 513-482-5614.
