Texas Location: Rebuilding After Hurricane Harvey

Fuller Center Disaster ReBuilders needs you now! We have begun rebuilding in the towns and surrounds of Dickinson, Friendswood, League City, and Texas City, an area southeast of Houston. Mucking out is essentially complete in this area, so we particularly need your skilled volunteer teams! Clear Lake Presbyterian Church (25 volunteers) and Gloria Dei Lutheran Church (40 volunteers) are generously providing room and board for you.

 

Generally, teams arrive Sunday afternoon and leave late Friday or Saturday morning. We’ll provide the construction leadership, tools and projects and you provide the passion for serving your neighbors in need.

Louisiana Location: Flood Recovery 

As you know, massive flooding occurred in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area in August of 2016. This flood from 24 hours of torrential rainfall damaged 154,000 homes (some have called it a 1,000 year weather phenomenon). Not surprisingly between 50% and 80% of the homeowners (depending on the area) did not have flood insurance. Fuller Center Disaster ReBuilders has been rebuilding homes with our partners in Louisiana since January 2017. Given the enormity of the disaster, there are many homeowners still needing assistance.
 
Our volunteer camp is located in Denham Springs. We’re working right alongside our partners: Ginger Ford Northshore Fuller Center for Housing in Hammond, LA and the S.M.A.L.L. Fuller Center for Housing located in Walker, LA.
 
We have the capacity for 26 volunteers each week. Our volunteer camp is located in the middle of a small horse (check out 10607 Cassle Road, Denham Springs, LA for a satellite view). While the work is not relaxing, the horse farm is a great place to wind down.
 
If you have a skilled team, we’d urge you to consider volunteering in Denham Springs where your skills will be more effectively used at this point than in Texas in the Harvey recovery.
