NCCC may have left Rosedale, but we will never forget the huge impact they made on our community. From Bike Month events to minor home repair, trails and gardens, they helped make Rosedale a better place to live, work and play in just six short weeks.
The National Civilian Community Corps is coming to Rosedale!
NCCC, an AmeriCorps program, partners with communities and nonprofits by sending teams of volunteers to complete projects related to community development and environmental health. Rosedale Development Association has been selected to host a team for six weeks in Rosedale. The team is set to arrive on April 24 and depart on June 4.
The NCCC team will tackle some of Rosedale’s pressing needs, like neighborhood and vacant lot cleanup and minor home repair. They will also build and improve important community resources like nature trails and community gardens.
RDA’s minor home repair program helps low income and elderly Rosedalians make needed repairs to their homes. Small repairs like painting, yard work and carpentry can make a big impact for homeowners and for the look and feel of their neighborhoods. NCCC will provide volunteer labor to several homeowners during their time in Rosedale.
NCCC’s revitalization and beautification efforts will be expanded through neighborhood and community cleanups. Hilltop Neighborhood Association is hosting a neighborhood clean up day May 2 with the help of NCCC and other volunteers, and other neighborhoods can get help with cleanup efforts as well.
Rosedale’s nature trails, the Rozarks, will benefit from the NCCC’s work building new trail and putting the finishing touches on the trail in Mt. Marty Park, Fisher Park, and Mission Cliffs.
Rosedale is a small community, but when residents, businesses and institutions all work together, we can accomplish great things. Our partnership with NCCC offers Rosedale a unique opportunity to take on some projects that might be a little too big for a neighborhood group or a single volunteer workday.
