In order to best serve families and the growing need for safe and affordable housing, we have launched Rock the Block. It focuses on in-fill development in the A. Price Woodard Neighborhood with the goal of creating large areas of sustainable change.
27 homes have been built in the area bounded by Ninth and 13th streets and Hillside and Grove streets.
We razed a house to make way for a safe, affordable home.
Watch a time-lapse video of the demolition here.
Working in conjunction with numerous local non-profit partners, private and public investors as well as the City of Wichita, A. Price Woodard Neighborhood Association and many other partners, we hope quality housing will be the anchor of broader transformation.
27 families now live in safe, affordable housing in the Rock the Block neighborhood!
