Mother of two far exceeded sweat equity requirements for her new home

EMPORIA, Virginia — Fuller Center for Housing homeowner partners put in a lot of work in the building of their homes. It’s called “sweat equity,” and is a core tenet of The Fuller Center’s philosophy that homeowners are co-workers and true partners in the building process, not charity cases. It also helps enhance the sense of pride families have in their homes.

Ebone Mallory was required to put in 500 hours of sweat equity for the Emporia-Greenville Fuller Center for Housing’s newest home, but the group is not sure exactly how many hours the mother of two put in.

They stopped counting at 550 hours.
