neighborhood revitalization

Through the Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) Program, we respond to community needs with an expanded array of products, services and partnerships that enhance the quality of life for everyone.

This work is temporarily on hiatus. We hope to resume soon.

Through Habitat for Humanity’s neighborhood revitalization (NR) work, we tailor our efforts by partnering locally with residents and community leaders and organizations to best address real concerns and improve the lives of the people who live in the neighborhood.

By working with the residents to understand their needs and concerns, we empower individuals to lead the projects they want to see. Alongside Habitat, residents work with churches, schools, new and longstanding neighborhood coalitions, local government and other community partners to achieve their goals.

What are some examples of NR projects?

Because the challenges and aspirations of each neighborhood are different, projects have to be tailored to fit the goals of each community.

That’s why NR can look like any of the following:

  • Exterior work performed to alleviate critical health, life, and safety issues or code violations

  • Accessibility modifications like ramps, door modifications

  • Roof and porch repair

  • Weatherization and home preservation

What is Rock the Block?

Rock the Block is a huge one-day volunteer event held in our focus neighborhood of that quarter. We assist our focus neighborhood residents with:

  • Needed repairs

  • Weatherization

  • Safety and accessibility

  • Landscaping

  • Beautification of homes and their neighborhood

 

Rock the Block provides a path for residents, organizations, volunteers, and Habitat for Humanity of Central Arkansas to come together to further our mission of building strength, stability, and self-reliance.
