Our Outreach & Programs
“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.”
― John Holmes
On The Block we love to serve others! We believe that service is a great display of selfless love. We have multiple ways that we serve our communities such as our partnership with Covenant House Houston, our Outreach in Clayton Homes and many more!
1000+ New writers Campaign
On The Block we believe that “The Pen Is Stronger Than The Gun”, and that is why we launched our 1,000 Writer’s Campaign. Our goal with this campaign is to give 1000+ youth and youth adults an alternative outlet for expressing themselves versus resulting to fighting and gun violence. We want to put notebooks and pens into the hands of 1000+ youth and young
adults across the city and encourage them to write down their goals, dreams and use their gifts for positivity.
Years Serving communities

WRITING AND PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP
On The Block we believe that everyone has a God given gift inside of them but not many know what that gift is or how to use it. We created our Writer's Block Writing and Performance Workshops to help teach the Art & Science behind writing, performing, branding yourself, networking and many more! In this workshop attendees learn from and connect with other professional and aspiring Artists, Poets, Musicians, Writers and more!
