The Fuller Center for Housing

The Fuller Center for Housing is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry dedicated to eliminating poverty housing worldwide. By forming partnerships with local organizations, we provide the structure, guidance, and support that communities need to build and repair homes for the impoverished among them. The center was started in spring 2005. A Fuller Center home is not a hand out, but a hand up. By working alongside volunteers and repaying construction costs on terms they can handle, homeowners are able to regain a sense of basic human dignity.
