Fuller Center for Housing of OKC’s president, Clyde Caldwell, has served in the housing ministry for many years. His friendship with Millard Fuller inspired him to establish an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity in southern Oklahoma and prompted him to engage local residents and businesses in founding The Fuller Center in Oklahoma City. The Fuller Center OKC’s focus is on the population within a 40-mile radius of Oklahoma City. Many young families in the urban area are forced to live with relatives, often in substandard housing, because of a lack of affordable alternatives. The more rural farming communities rely heavily on mobile homes, presenting issues of safety and durability. And many seniors, though they often own their homes, are unable to afford necessary repairs to their houses, and subsequently allow them to fall into states of disrepair.
