Rock the Block

Coming to South Oak Park again Fall 2020

400 volunteers, 30+ organizations, 29 projects, and 36 hours to ROCK South Oak Park!

Check out our video recap of our pilot Rock the Block from October 2018!

Rock the Block is a unique and incredible opportunity for business leaders and individuals in our Sacramento region to join together with Habitat for Humanity Greater Sacramento, socially-engaged community leaders, and residents to improve our community.


About Rock the Block:

Can you imagine living in a home that was about to fall down on top of you?  Did you know there are people here in Sacramento living like that – without hope?

“Rock the Block” is a one-of-a-kind Habitat led coalition of residents, nonprofits, and organizations brought together to repair homes and revitalize South Oak Park.  Our 2019 Rock the Block catalyzed over 30 organizations, nonprofits, community groups, elected officials, law enforcement, and over 400 volunteers to work together with residents to uplift South Oak Park. In 2 days, we repaired 23 homes and supported 7 community projects for a total of 29 projects completed in 36 hours.

With your investment of support for Rock the Block 2020, we can continue to increase our impact year after year, add more substantial improvements to the neighborhood’s community assets, and drive this revitalization forward.
