News & information
"Every night, I thank God for The Fuller Center. I’m so appreciative. To see it now is just amazing. I wake up every day and I’m amazed, every day.”
"I’m grateful to know Mr. Fuller’s vision — his real vision — is continuing now with what you are doing and that it truly is to be ambassadors of the Gospel, not just to hammer nails."
"That bridging from going to church and taking somebody with us on one hand and demonstrating what Christ told us to do is a very difficult thing to tie together. But Millard Fuller taught me how it could be done."
“You see all the hate that’s on the news, and you miss out on all the good love that’s out there. This tells me there’s more love in the world than hate. This is a miracle.”
“You’d be surprised how quickly you take value in your work once you start putting the first couple of brush strokes down. All of the sudden, I feel like we have a common goal. It’s been really cool to get hands-on. I haven’t gotten enough paint on me yet!”
"It’s not a handout — this is the best opportunity I’ve had to own something that’s affordable without having to pay a whole lot of ridiculous interest"
"You’re paying your mortgage, and insurance and tax escrow, and it’s less than my rent was. It’s much less of a burden than rent that you’re just throwing away. And every time we pay we’re getting that much closer to being able to build a house for another person."
“I thought I was going to have to go out and get us into some real debt to find some place that was comfortable for us, But God worked it out so that we could still have a nice house but not have to pay as much as we’ve been paying in rent."
“I always receive way more than I give. The feeling of being part of a team that provides a new home for a deserving family is not easily described. Wonderful, awesome and fantastic are words that come to mind, but somehow those words are not enough.”
“It’s just blessings on top of blessings, These are God-fearing people. I grew up in the church, singing in the choir, so it means something extra that these are Christian people who are helping."
"It’s honestly a blessing, and it’s important to my faith because we’re doing what Jesus would do. We’re loving others, but we’re actually doing it with action. There’s no greater feeling than helping others."
“I've got ownership in my home. And when I make a payment, it goes to help someone else get a home, and I love that part about it."
“I’m happy, happy, happy. I’m inspired to work like never before. Getting this house, I now see that everything is possible in life. I hope I’ll have the opportunity to build a house like this someday.”
"I'm really seeing the effects on our kids. I'm seeing our kids do well in school. I'm seeing them do well socially. It's amazing. I feel very blessed."
"To learn that your work means so much to someone else made me understand the value that comes from helping others, and that simply lending a helping hand is one of the easiest things you can do to make a difference in the world."
"I love the ethos of this charity; it’s not a hand-out, it’s a hand up — giving something back to people who have lost their homes, or perhaps their pride, confidence or ability."
“I got down and dirty this week — dirtier than I’ve ever been in my life. I’ve lifted things that are heavier than elephants. My feet hurt all day long, but I still push through it because at the end I know that somebody’s going to be very happy that they’re going to have a new house. That’s going to be so amazing.”
"The American Dream didn’t apply to me. Life was just one long day. But then when The Fuller Center for Housing came along, I knew I was going to have a tomorrow."
""It is God who has heard the prayers and we have wept with joy, thanking our Holy Father for listening and that the dream of having housing in good condition may be a reality. In our new home we will receive the child who comes to us in a short time."
"The Fuller Center does such amazing work around the country. It is amazing to watch the house come together and know we all are working together to help a family build a better life.”
"You’re really helping somebody, and the homeowners really appreciate it. It’s just the satisfaction of being able to work with a homeowner and just to help them maybe start a better life. They have a need, and we have a gift to be able to work with our hands."
"All these volunteers are my new families — forever welcome to come again soon and be part of my life in my home as lifelong family and friends. … I wouldn’t have a home if it hadn’t been for them.”
“Any good mayor needs to have a soul for the city. The city is all the faces and all the conditions that everybody is in. So, giving hope and rebuilding neighborhoods is a part of that, and I’m really glad to be a part of it with Fuller.”
"For years I had dreamed of having a comfortable house, and the hope that the dream could ever come true was all but little. I want to express my deepest gratitude for making the future of my family so bright, decent, and safe."
“The idea of going to the United States, it’s gone now. We’re doing well here and we have a home together. I never wanted to leave my kids. To people who are thinking of going to the United States, I would tell them not to. Every community has opportunities.”
I like the idea that you’re helping people make their lives but not with a handout but a hand-up. I just find it a wonderful way for me to help in a way that I know is actually helping. To me, this isn’t charity. It’s being part of a community.
“I always wanted to have a house with walls because on Mother’s Day my daughters would give me pictures, but I didn’t have any place to hang them because the house was made of sticks. Now, I can hang them up. I thought I would die without ever having a house with walls.”
"It fills your chest, it fills your heart. It feels good to be with people who have a common goal that is helping, making sure that everyone has the opportunity to call a place home."
“Having our house gave security and stability to everyone in my family. We are very happy and grateful to The Fuller Center for helping us realize this long-time dream. Having this home helped me see the positive side of everything and persist in the face of problems.”
