About Ginger Ford Northshore Fuller Center:
We have two retail stores, The Fuller Shop and the ReUse store. We take in gently used items that have been donated and resale them to help with our building efforts. We also have quite a few homes that we manage or construct on any given day. Our Volunteers and employees are very special to us. Each of these individuals help in our mission to build a better community.
Tangipahoa Parish and our surrounding areas have much to offer visitors as well as fellow citizens. From Cajun Pride Swamp Tours and to being only one hour from The New Orleans French Quarter. Also, we have LSU-Baton Rouge less than an hour away. This region is known for great Southern Hospitality and this covenant partner is a top return destination for many of our groups.
Located less than an hour from New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Hammond is in an area fast becoming one of the newest suburbs for both cities. Ginger Ford Northshore serves all of Tangipahoa Parish and eastern Livingston Parish. Ginger Ford Northshore builds new homes and repairs existing ones through the Greater Blessing program. Volunteers also build many wheelchair ramps in the area for elderly and disabled residents. Two stores at 955 S. Morrison Blvd. in Hammond support the mission:
The ReUse Store specializes in construction supplies, furniture and large appliances.
The Fuller Shop sells house wares and decorative items for the home.
