Rock the Block is a community wide effort to rebuild and refresh RiverTown Homes, a low-income housing community in River Falls.
We need hundreds of people to help build new storage sheds for each home, refresh the green space in the middle of the neighborhood, and add new, accessible playground equipment, park benches, picnic tables and landscaping.
This five day project will be on site Wednesday, September 22 – Sunday, September 26. A wrap up thank you event will take place Sunday afternoon, September 26 (we'll fill you in on those details soon).
It always takes a village to build a village, so SCV Habitat is partnering with River Falls Housing Authority, the City of River Falls, Kraus-Anderson, Andersen Windows & Doors and Tattersall Distilling to get this project off the ground! And we always need support.
Please email Kristie Smith at email@example.com to talk about ideas you have to pitch in!

In 1994, Habitat for Humanity partnered with a new national service program, AmeriCorps, to place 122 individuals in five locations to support Habitat’s work. Habitat for Humanity was one of the first organizations to partner with AmeriCorps.
Today, more than 500 AmeriCorps members serve with Habitat in 42 states and the District of Columbia, encompassing more than 160 communities.
We are excited to have Jessie Timme on board with us during this AmeriCorps service year. Look for 2022 opportunities here soon.
We know that volunteers are Humanitarians. The Scott Brothers take a minute from their volunteer work with Habitat to talk a little about that experience.
Neighbors helping neighbors, with a little help from a President.
Habitat is creating safe and affordable housing all over the world. We're humbled by the chance to make a difference in Pierce and St. Croix Counties in Wisconsin.
