Fuller Center Disaster ReBuilders

With an abundance of caution for you and for those we serve, we're now accepting reservations for July. 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.

FLORIDA

We are rebuilding in the communities around Panama City in Bay County, hard-hit by Hurricane Michael in 2018. We're excited about working in partnership with our long-time friends, Mercy Chefs. They're providing meals and accommodations for 25 of you each week. We’ll provide the construction leadership, tools and projects — and you provide the energy and passion for serving. You've seen the pictures, but this is definitely the closest thing to Katrina since 2005. One difference — very little flood damage, mostly big wind!

Florida Volunteer Dates Availability

All weeks beginning in July have some availability.

NORTH CAROLINA

We are rebuilding in New Bern, N.C., and the surrounding communities recovering from the high winds and torrential flooding of Hurricane Florence in September 2018. Yes, we're approaching the two-year point, but the need remains large. We have capacity to host 40 volunteers (20 maximum for youth groups). Cost is $125/person. We’ll provide the construction leadership, tools and projects — and you provide the passion for serving families in need.

N.C. Volunteer Dates Availability

All weeks beginning in July have some availability.

TEXAS

We are rebuilding in several communities hard-hit by Hurricane Harvey in 2017. Our area of operation extends along the I-45 corridor from southeast Houston to Texas City. Clear Lake Presbyterian Church is graciously providing room and board for 25 volunteers. We’ll provide the construction leadership, tools and projects — and you provide the passion for serving families in need. In 2019 in addition to rebuilding mucked-out homes, we are building six entirely new homes for families whose homes were destroyed.

Texas Volunteer Dates Availability

All weeks beginning in July have some availability.
