Rock the Block

What is Rock the Block?

1 Community | 2 Days Filled with Hope

Rock the Block is an extension of Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County’s neighborhood revitalization efforts with specific emphasis on assisting neighborhoods where Habitat is active with community projects and advocacy. Rock the Block brings together hundreds of volunteers to support the home preservation goals and place-based investments of communities. Once a year, volunteers’ partner with neighborhood organizations to complete exterior home preservation projects, perform park maintenance, and refresh public spaces across a single neighborhood.

While volunteers paint, plant flowers, or pick up debris, they get to know other volunteers and the community around them.  See our impact in 2021-2022. By registering for Habitat of Sonoma Countys’ 1st Annual Rock the Block you are standing with your neighbors to make communities safer, more beautiful, and more accessible.

Preserving Affordable Homeownership

Rock the Block is an extension of Habitat’s Aging in Place Critical Home Repair Program. The Repair Program seeks to preserve low-income homeownership and improve the quality of life for low and middle-income homeowners through holistic place-based investment. At Habitat of Sonoma County, our work includes critical home repairs, Aging in Place modifications, and now, Rock the Block. By investing in existing affordable homes, homeowners, and their communities, we can make a greater impact in the neighborhoods we serve.

How it Happens?

An Investment in Community

Rock the Block is an extension of Habitat’s neighborhood revitalization efforts. Neighborhood revitalization is a collaborative approach to improve the quality of life for all residents in a neighborhood. Habitat invests in neighborhoods that often experience disinvestment. As we work towards a world where everyone has a decent place to live, we know that affordable homeownership is only part of the solution.
