Goals and Objectives
Fuller NWLA has constructed 43 new affordable homes of ~1,200 square feet to ~1,500 square feet, rehabilitated 49 owner-occupied homes, and facilitated the building of four handicapped ramps for homeowners in need.
These 43 homes provide housing for over 105 individuals, and the 49 Greater Blessing rehabilitation projects have impacted nearly 120 individuals. 86% of the homeowners are paying their mortgages on time, and 97% of the homes built are occupied.
In partnership with Community Renewal International (CRI), the City of Shreveport, and local faith-based organizations, property, volunteers and materials were secured to initially renew the Allendale neighborhood, bringing new life to a once crime- and violence-ridden community. The Fuller Center now reaches out and services other neighborhoods in the Shreveport area.
Hurricane evacuee families have found new homes and new hope on “Higher Ground” in Shreveport. The Fuller Center, committed to build at 60 new houses for hurricane residents in need in Shreveport.
The Fuller Center for Housing of Northwest Louisiana (FCHNWLA) was founded in 2005 in response to the housing crisis created in Shreveport by the influx of Hurricane Katrina evacuees.
The FCHNWLA transferred to local management in January, 2008.
And has continued to transform this community in a community of hope and love, a community where children feel safe and new and existing homeowner are coming together to share ideals and ways to improve this community for all residents.
