Rock the Block
Thank you to everyone who joined us for Rock the Block Oak Park May 6-7th. Be sure to check out the recap video below!
About Rock the Block:
Rock the Block is a remarkable 2-day community impact event that brings together hundreds of volunteers and supporters to work in partnership with neighborhood residents to complete dozens of critical home repairs, property beautification, and community projects over a single weekend. Through Rock the Block, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento leverages financial donations and thousands of volunteer hours into thousands of dollars’ worth of community investment in historically underinvested neighborhoods.
Rock the Block neighborhoods have 3 qualities in common:
- Historically underserved communities with majority of residents considered “low-income” – earning under 80% of the area median income.
- Residents living under the threat of displacement. Particularly senior, BIPOGM (Black, Indigenous, People of Global Majority) – also known as “BIPOC”, disabled, and multi-generational homeowners due to deferred, high-cost home maintenance.
- Thriving neighborhood associations and community-based organizations in place.
We are thrilled to announce that beginning in 2022, we will be hosting two Rock the Block events each year – a Spring event in Sacramento County and a Fall event in Yolo County.
