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 through April 10.

Southeast Louisiana

On August 29, 2021, on the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Ida was a deadly and destructive Category 4 Atlantic hurricane that became the second-most damaging and intense hurricane to strike Louisiana on record, behind Hurricane Katrina, and is tied for the strongest landfall in the state by maximum winds with Hurricane Laura a year before and the 1856 Last Island hurricane. THE NEED IS GREAT! With appropriate protocols, we believe you can have a COVID-19 safe experience. Rebuilding is under way! In partnership with our friends from Ginger Ford Northshore Fuller Center, we are rebuilding in Hammond, LA. Please pray for these families! AND PLEASE COME!

SE Louisiana Volunteer Dates Availability

Feb. 6-12 now available.
Feb. 20-26 now available.

For dates after, Call Lyn Wilson first at 346-763-7499 to ensure slots are open.

Kentucky

On December 10th, 2021, Kentucky was hit by record-setting, catastrophic tornadoes. A “long-track” twister was on the ground for almost 200 miles and hit 11 counties, including the small towns of Dawson Springs and Bremen. We are partnering with First Christian Church of Madisonville, centrally located between Dawson Springs and Bremen, to house volunteers and begin rebuilding these communities. NOTE: as we work to staff this new mission, we recommend your team have solid construction leadership and the ability to prepare your own meals. Our volunteer capacity is limited to 20, so please call Lyn Wilson (346-763-7499) for information.

Kentucky Volunteer Dates Availability

Availability begins Feb. 28
