TurnBackBlockLogoMinistry needs in the Augusta-CSRA community are numerous. Not too long ago, the Harrisburg community in Augusta-Richmond County was a thriving place to live, shop, worship and learn. Some residents remember when they could safely rock on their porches, chat over the fence with their neighbors, and walk to the curb market on a summer evening. In recent years, Harrisburg has experienced disinvestment, and the pride that once radiated through the community has dwindled.

Turn Back The Block is a faith-based, nonprofit organization whose mission is to revitalize the Harrisburg neighborhood through the rehabilitation of existing housing stock and the promotion of home ownership therein. Turn Back the Block recognizes that change will happen on a house by house, block by block basis, and only with the strong support of this community. Donations of property, funds, materials and labor are critical to the success of this project.

Our church participates in the Block Parties on several Saturdays a year with hands-on supervised labor for 4 hours each time. Reid Memorial Contact: Brannon Sell (706) 724-9000. Read more.
