Fuller Center projects are all about empowerment not “giveaway” programs. The payments which come back to the local community are put into a fund and that money is recycled to build additional homes or complete other home repair projects.
The Waldrop Residence, Hampton GA - July, 2012
Driving home one afternoon after picking up her grandson from daycare, Mrs. Waldrop got caught in a violent storm. She was trying to get into the house as fast as she could so they could seek shelter in basement of the house..
While they were huddled safely in the house a nearby tree fell on the house causing structural damage to the roof, the front porch to collapse, along with damage to the deck and ceilings.
Bobby & Anita Simpson - July 2011
The tornadoes touched down and devastated hundreds of lives leaving in it's ugly trail, damaged structures and debris in its wake.Bobby & Anita Simpson happen to be one of those families who suffered that loss. With no home insurance, they have no choice but to look towards the community for help.
On April 30, a small group from Henry County worked as a team to clear fallen trees from the yard and cover the damaged sections of the roof with tarp, until proper repairs can be done.
Fuller Center for Housing and the Atlanta Fuller Center collaborated and channeled their support through the local Henry County Fuller Center. With volunteers coming from near and far, it took 14 consecutive weekends to restore the damage and move this family back into their home.
