Amish volunteer team raises walls on Ginger Ford Northshore’s 24th new home

With the help of some Amish friends working through The Fuller Center’s U.S. Builders program, the Ginger Ford Northshore Fuller Center for Housing raised the walls this week on their 24th new home build — this one on East Park Street in Hammond, Louisiana, for Daphne Vernon and her son, Aaron.
