The Fuller Center for Housing NWLA is a not-for-profit organization that works with service-oriented organizations and countless volunteers to build and repair homes for people who are unable to secure adequate housing by conventional means. Our ability to continue to realize our mission is made possible because of your support!
“For a community to be whole and healthy, it must be based on people's love and concern for each other... Everyone who gets sleepy at night should have a simple decent place to lay their heads, on terms they can afford to pay.” ~ Millard Fuller, Founder
