Do you or someone you know have a home in need of repairs? GDM Habitat for Humanity may be able to help make critical home repairs affordable!

 
Rock the Block® provides a path for homeowners, organizations, volunteers, and GDM Habitat to come together to assist low-income residents with needed repair, maintenance, weatherization, safety, accessibility, and beautification of homes. We serve families in both Polk County and Dallas County.

How it works

Rock the Block® brings homeowners, volunteers, and Habitat for Humanity together to support low-income residents with needed repair, maintenance, weatherization, safety, accessibility, and beautification of homes. Homeowners can apply for the program and are accepted based on their household income.

Residents that qualify for Rock the Block® services are given access to four distinct categories:

  • Exterior Maintenance (such as roofs and siding)
  • Critical Home Repair (such as furnaces and water heaters)
  • Weatherization (such as windows and insulation)
  • Accessibility (such as ramps and grab bars)

How do I qualify?

  • Need: Families must earn between 0-60% of the area median income and own their home.
  • Ability to pay: After a complete home assessment our staff will determine what, if any, repayment is needed for our services.
  • Willingness to partner: Rock the Block ® partner families are required to complete a minimum of six (6) hours of sweat equity.
