Meet the Homeowners for the Millard Fuller Legacy Build 2011
Homeowners are the inspiration of the Millard Fuller Legacy Build. They will work hard to partner with the Webster Fuller Center in Minden, Louisiana for many months before and after the event.
Meet some of the homeowner families that will be recipients of a new home or receive a renovation as part of the Millard Fuller Legacy Build 2011.
New home recipient with her daughter My’ya age 7 and her son Jaylen age 4.
Uanya works at a fast-food restaurant in Bossier City (25 miles away), and she has been a most responsible parent in providing for her children and herself. But the house in which they live is what Millard Fuller described as a “shack.” It has been in the family for many years, but the condition is such that Uanya and her children were quickly selected by the Fuller Center of Webster to partner in the Millard Fuller Legacy Build 2011.
Shanika Harris New home recipient with her sons Aaron age 5 and Andrew age 2.
Shanika Harris is the mother of two young sons – Aaron and Andrew. Caring for and raising these two young boys is a challenge for Shanika. And her situation is compounded by the fact that they live in a mobile home that is in terrible condition. Plumbing leaks, sagging floors, cracks in the wall, and a leaky roof are just some of the unacceptable conditions in this residence. Shanika has proven her commitment to her partnership with the Fuller Center of Webster by accomplishing almost all of the required 500 hours of sweat equity.
Emma Quarles Renovation home recipient
Emma Quarles is 92 years old and still maintains her own home. Her home is in desparate need of insulation, repair of leaks, and outside paint. She looks forward to being able to stay in her home for many years to come but needs help in making these repairs to her home.
