Block Blitz 2018, in its 12th year, is scheduled for Friday, September 14th from 9am - 3pm, in Syracuse's Elmwood Neighborhood. We hope to see you there!

Block Blitz is an annual community revitalization event organized by Home HeadQuarters that brings together homeowners, community partners, skilled contractors and volunteers who donate their time and talents to help cleanup, landscape, paint, and repair as many homes as possible in a single day in a high-need neighborhood!

Over the last eleven years, Block Blitz events have improved nearly 300 properties in city of Syracuse neighborhoods. If you would like for your neighborhood to be considered for an upcoming event, or would like to see how you can get involved, please contact us at info@homehq.org or (315) 474-1939.
