Committed to a brighter future for children, neighbors and communities.

We consider a healthy neighborhood to be one that is safe, clean, and diverse; one in which it makes economic sense for people to invest and one where neighbors manage change successfully.

Roof Repairs Application – Phase IV

Roof Repairs

We are accepting new applications for our Roof Repair Program..  Please let your friends know.

Grassroots Community Development is proud to announce a phase IV of its highly successful roof repair program to help low income families with repairing their roofs.  In the rainy months we receive calls from families with terrible roof problems.  This third phase of our program hopes to address some of that need.  Grassroots Community Development is finishing up the completion of 40+ roof repairs for families and is starting a Phase IV of these efforts.  The services provided by Grassroots Community Development Corporation are made possible in part through a grant from the City of Waco.  The program is free to low-income families that live in the City of Waco.  We have enough funds to repair around 10 roofs.  We will open up enrollment for the program December 9th with a deadline to accept applications of    January 16th.   We will begin evaluating homes in February, then we will be hiring roofing contractors to complete the roofing projects.

Last Friday was a busy time of celebratory events in East Waco. JH Hines hosted a Muffins for Moms event, where over 100 moms, grandmothers, aunties, sisters, and mother figures attended. Community partners and other volunteers also showed up to support this effort.
At the same time, just across West Waco Drive, was the Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new GW Carver Middle School. Alumni, current students and staff, public officials,Waco ISD, residents and other community members gathered for this historical event. We enjoyed being able to participate and support these exciting moments.
