What: Little Rock Residents will get their “World Changed”

           By Student Volunteers

When: Tuesday, July 8th – 2:30 p.m.

Where: 2300 Commerce

 

Teenagers are coming to Little Rock to change the world one house at a time.  World Changers helps cities across North America alleviate substandard housing and they are making their annual visit to the capital city in July.

 

19,000 teens will volunteer with the World Changers Organization this summer and about 200 will come to Little Rock.  The faith-based organization started in 1990. Since then, it has connected teenagers with thousands of service projects throughout the United States.

 

Helping home owners in our community is made possible through a partnership with the City of Little Rock’s Department of Housing and Neighborhood Programs, World Changers and Community Development Division. This is the group's 11th year in Little Rock, and this time, crews are painting and providing minor wood repair for 14 local work sites. Eligible homeowners applied in the fall of to be on this summer’s World Changer’s agenda.  The eligibility criteria includes:

 

  • Must be at least 62 years of age or disabled
  • Must own and occupy the home
  • Must meet the income guidelines for the program

 

Tuesday, July 8th at 2:30 p.m., the City of Little Rock and World Changers will kick off this year’s week of home improvements. The work sites will be:
