Rock The block

Together, We’ll Help Our Community

Rock the Block brings together hundreds of volunteers to support home preservation and community improvement projects in focus neighborhoods across the Kansas City metro.

The impact is striking but it’s more than just curb appeal that is restored. Rock the Block helps restore pride in homeownership for the affected families and helps increase community connections along the way.

Bill Cole

- Home Preservation Project

"I didn't know that they worked on houses, I thought they just built houses. I had wood rot everywhere ... they replaced all the rotten siding, and the paint made it look like a brand new home."


- Rock the Block Homeowner

"My wife and I have been needing our house painted for a long time, but we couldn't do it on our own. I can’t say the words for what it means. For someone to knock on our door, then come out and get it done for us in a day is a blessing. Thank God."

Marjorie Thomas

- Rock the Block Homeowner

"I've lived in Wendell Phillips for 29 years and now my home feels like the newest house on the block."
