Fuller Center Disaster ReBuilders

With an abundance of caution for you and for those we serve, we're again accepting reservations at all three of our current bases of operation. Clearly, there will changes as we comply with different state mandates and evolving CDC guidelines. And, yes, the experience will be different but your volunteer contribution is still desperately needed by so many in all of the disaster areas we serve.

Southwest Louisiana

On August 27, 2020, Hurricane Laura slammed into the southwest Louisiana as the 10th strongest hurricane to ever make landfall in the United States. The extreme winds damaged caused catastrophic damage to literally thousands of homes … then Hurricane Delta struck the same general area just a few weeks later. We’re accepting volunteer teams (maximum size 15). We are working out of a base in Sulphur, LA. Call Lyn Wilson, Volunteer Scheduler, at 346-763-7499 or email disaster-rebuilders@fullercenter.org.

SW Louisiana Volunteer Dates Availability

No availability in July or October 2021 or Jan. 24-Feb. 19, 2022; All other weeks available.

North Carolina

We are rebuilding in Eastern, N.C., including the counties near New Bern, all of which are recovering from the high winds and torrential flooding of Hurricane Florence in September 2018. Yes, it’s been almost three years, but we still need you. We have capacity to host 12 volunteers. Cost varies depending on housing option chosen (see FAQs). We provide the construction leadership, tools and projects — and you provide the passion for serving families in need.​

N.C. Volunteer Dates Availability

NO AVAILABILITY OCT. 30-NOV. 20, 2021

Availability is limited. Call Lyn Wilson first at 346-763-7499.

Southeast Louisiana

With our friends from Ginger Ford Northshore Fuller Center for Housing we have started work in Hammond, LA. Our volunteer quarters at First Presbyterian Church in Hammond has power. That means you have air conditioning, the ability to shower after dark, WiFi and all kinds of luxury items. With Americorps we are clearing debris, mucking houses and tarping roofs.  We are looking for additional hosting sites for more teams to come down. As a bonus for teams coming down, Hammond is also the site of Operation BBQ which plans to serve up thousands of BBQ dinners.

SE Louisiana Volunteer Dates Availability

All weeks currently available.
