Grassroots Community Development

As an organization, Grassroots originally served Waco through building and remodeling homes. Over time, the organization has come to understand that cultivating healthy neighborhoods is more than just building attractive and affordable homes. Grassroots utilizes an asset-based community development approach to serve neighbors, children, and communities. Neighbors are served through leadership development training classes, free financial literacy and homebuyer education, and counseling to prepare families to become homeowners. Children are served academically through fostering family engagement efforts and school-community partnerships. Communities are served through roof and exterior home repair programs, building new homes and community enhancement projects.  
Building intentional and authentic relationships with neighbors through these programs is at the heart of what Grassroots Community Development does.
