Community Partners are critical to the success of a Block Build. Community Partners:
Introduce residents in the neighborhood to the work of RTP
Go to door-to-door to distribute and collect applications for home repairs
Help collect proof that a homeowner qualifies for RTP
Host or help to find a location for RTP's homeowner orientation
Collect resident signatures to block streets on rebuilding days
Provide translation services for non-English speaking homeowners
Would You Like to Become a Community Partner?
RTP usually spends 3 to 5 years in a neighborhood working on several blocks to achieve a broad community impact. Are you working with a community that could benefit from safe and healthy home repairs and are interested in becoming a community partner?
Know that we need 10-15 homeowners in a cluster for RTP to consider your community. See the block application here. For further information, please call RTP’s office at 215-965-0777.
