IN THE NEWS: Fuller Center to dedicate four Veterans Build homes in Shreveport

(Shreveport Times) Four veterans who once lived on the streets will get the keys to new homes Saturday in Shreveport. Cliff Malone, Larry Linear, Miguel Guigni and William Hardy are the first to move into Veterans Village, a Fuller Center for Housing project in Shreveport’s Stoner Hill neighborhood. A $300,000 grant from Pink Floyd rocker Roger Waters and the Bob Woodruff Foundation helped the Fuller Center build the houses.

Volunteers kicked off construction March 1 and wrapped up work this month. The Fuller Center is seeking donations and grants to build another six houses in the development. Veterans living in the neighborhood are within walking distance of Overton Brooks VA Medical Center.
