A focus on renovating homes strengthens neighborhoods AND community.

Habitat for Humanity of Fond du Lac County’s Rock the Block will be focusing on the City of Fond du Lac’s Hamilton Street and Forest Avenue neighborhoods this fall.
Imagine hundreds of your closest friends, family, and community members join in around this neighborhood, coming together, and lifting it up through exterior home repairs, yard and street clean ups, landscaping, painting, and the list goes on!
The Rock the Block program brings residents and community partners together to collaborate efforts in targeted neighborhoods. Along with Habitat’s community partners, Habitat can assist low-income residents, maintain home ownership rates, improve the housing stock, and increase neighborhood pride. Volunteers and staff work to complete exterior home repair and preservation projects for low-income homeowners and community projects to improve and beautify the neighborhood surrounding the homes.

Neighborhood revitalization is a holistic approach that expands our traditional partnerships with new homeowners and volunteers to include neighbors and local organizations so that we can make a far greater impact in the neighborhoods and communities that we serve. While home construction continues to play a vital role, a bigger toolbox that includes repairs and other services allows Habitat to serve more families.
