“We are thrilled to be working with the city to host Rock the Block in Covington,” says Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati CEO, Joe Hansbauer. “For many years, Habitat has worked to preserve affordable homeownership in the NKY region through our Critical Repair Programs and we are on track to significantly expand those programs. Rock the Block has been a wonderful avenue to reengage with the community and its leaders as we look to create new homeownership opportunities in Covington that are truly affordable for hardworking families.”

The event will focus on a range of home repair and beautification projects, including painting, landscaping, and minor repairs. A map of all projects can be found www.rtb.hfhgc.orionhfhsoftware.com.

Volunteers will work in teams and will be paired with homeowners who want assistance with their homes. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati believes these projects will improve the physical condition of the homes and help build stronger relationships between the homeowners and their neighbors.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati has been serving the local community for over 35 years.
