New Jersey to host 2013 Millard Fuller Legacy Build

Fuller Center for Housing President David Snell has announced that the 2013 Millard Fuller Legacy Build will be coming to the state of New Jersey.

The Fuller Center for Housing in the New Jersey Pines of Tabernacle, N.J., will host the 2013 Legacy Build July 29-Aug.2, 2013, with an emphasis on restoring existing homes.

“We’re very excited that The Fuller Center for Housing in the New Jersey Pines will be hosting the 2013 Millard Fuller Legacy Build,” Snell said. “This is an outstanding covenant partner with solid leadership and a history of dedication to our shared mission. We will restore 20 houses there during the week of July 29 in what will surely be a memorable event.”

The focus on house restorations reflects the majority of the work The Fuller Center does in the United States. With more than 18 million vacant homes in America and millions more occupied but in need of major repairs, The Fuller Center’s domestic work is focused on these two issues.

The Fuller Center’s Save a House/Make a Home program looks to accept donations of unwanted properties owned by banks and investors and turn them into decent homes for families in need. Meanwhile, the bulk of work done by covenant partners across the United States involves repairs and restorations for families who need a hand up and elderly who struggle with home maintenance issues due to fiscal or physical limitations.

FCH New Jersey Pines is in the process of planning for the build, which is expected to feature partnerships with other like-minded organizations. Call 609-923-5631 or email for more information.
