Rock the Block: Pontiac

June 3 - June 5

Rock the Block
June 3 and 5, 2021
8:30 am – 3:30 pm
Ferry Farms/Unity Park Neighborhood, Pontiac, MI

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 250 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.

Our most common Rock the Block project requests:

  • Landscape clean up: rake, edge, trim hedges/trees, brush clearing
  • Lawn mowing
  • Gutter cleaning and repair
  • Exterior home cleaning & power washing
  • Wood porch, steps and/or fence repair
  • Wood porch or fence painting/staining
  • Sidewalk and driveway maintenance
  • Leaf raking
  • Dumpster use (trash and yard debris)
  • Home energy audit

We are also able to accommodate special homeowner requests (like major safety concerns and accessibility ramps) on a case-by-case basis.
