Habitat Oakland’s Rock the Block program brings together homeowners, volunteers, and community sponsors to create high-energy community revitalization events. Volunteers work with homeowners and Habitat’s construction staff to repair porches, install fences, replace cracked concrete, clean gutters, and complete landscape and lawn clean-up. Homeowners pay a modest fee for the work that is performed. To date, over 236 homeowners have been served through this program.
This event will have 12-15 simultaneous projects taking place over a two-day period in the Ferry Farms/Unity Park Neighborhood in Pontiac.
