“Emily Build” puts finishing touch on homeowner’s recovery and redemption

Melanie Moss climbed her way out of a life of drug addiction and now helps others on their road to recovery by working for the Council on Alcoholism & Drug Abuse of Northwest Louisiana. The last step in Melanie’s road to a full recovery would be a simple, decent place to live.

Emily Perdue

Thankfully, that is now being made possible through the Emily Build, a Northwest Louisiana Fuller Center for Housing build in Bossier City, La., that is supported by local churches and volunteers. The build honors the life of Emily Perdue, who was killed in a 2006 car wreck along with friends Katy Watkins and Molly Reed. The “Emily Build” home will sit near three other Fuller Center homes, including two “Katy Build” houses and a “Molly Build.” Get your tissues handy and check out KSLA-TV’s 5-minute “The Good Stuff” report on this build, featuring interviews with Melanie and Emily’s parents. It truly is good stuff!
