After 30-plus years in “temporary” shelter, Armenian family to soon have decent home

Since a massive earthquake struck Armenia in 1988, the Soghoyan-Tadevosyan family has been living in a metal shipping container. Unfortunately, this is not a unique story as thousands of Armenian families have been living in these “domiks” that were provided by the Soviet Union as “temporary” shelters after the disaster. But the Soviet Union collapsed, and many of these families saw their dreams of having a decent home dashed. Many children throughout Armenia have no idea what it is like to live in a simple, decent home and to have protection from the cold winters.

Fortunately, The Fuller Center for Housing has worked through its efficient partners in Armenia, hard-working volunteers, and dedicated financial supporters to extend a hand-up to hundreds of families like the Soghoyan-Tadevosyans, helping them move from domiks to decent homes. Public Radio of Armenia has a report on the Soghoyan-Tadevosyan family and their new Fuller Center home in the village of Gyurmi at this link.
