Eligibility Update

In efforts to further spread our mission to more of our community members, we have implemented a new eligibility rule as of 2022. Previous Rock the Block program participants are now eligible for services every other year. This rule has been established to reduce the number of repeat participants each year.

For example, Rock the Block participants who received services in 2022, are eligible for services again in 2024.

Any questions can be directed to the Partner and Community Programs Department at (248) 338-1843 ext. 200.

Rock the Block is a community initiative by Habitat Oakland, uniting homeowners, volunteers, community sponsors, and staff to drive neighborhood revitalization efforts. This transformative series comprises four impactful two-day events, each designed to bring immediate and visible change to multi-block areas. Volunteers work with Habitat’s construction staff to perform yard clean-up including leaf removal (front and backyards), trash removal (dumpsters on site for residents to utilize), limited branch trimming, hedge trimming, lawn mowing, and edging. Rock the Block aims to ensure that homeowners reside in safe and appealing environments. The program not only contributes to the enhancement of home values but also plays a crucial role in fostering neighborhood stability.
