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.

Bounce and Roof Repair Program

Grassroots Community Development is proud to announce a new phase 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 new phase of our program hopes to address some of that need. Grassroots Community Development is finishing up the completion of 145+ roof repairs for families and is starting a new phase 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 15 roofs. Our application process is open until we have expended our funds.

Grassroots is delighted that one of our Community Organizers, Deshauna Hollie received the first Henrietta Napier Changemaker Award in Education!!! Read more details below.

The winner of the Henrietta Napier Changemaker Award in Education is DeShauna Hollie.
Hollie works at Grassroots Community Development, and she spent 10 years teaching young children at Talitha Koum. She has promoted effective early childhood care and education by considering the traumatic stress experienced by many children. After a decade of addressing social and emotional needs while teaching, DeShauna made a move to community organizing in North Waco with Grassroots Community Development. Here she continues to advocate for children and families while building bridges across sectors. Hollie considers a supportive neighborhood as part of a healthy childhood experience.

Congratulations DeShauna!
