Silver Valley Fuller Center for Housing, located in the region of the Coeur d’Alene Mountains in northern Idaho, began as a local ministry in 1991 as an affiliate with Habitat for Humanity. In August of 2009 they joined the Fuller Center for Housing and became the first Fuller Center in Idaho. Noted for its mining heritage, dating back to the 1880s, the Silver Valley area was devastated with the closure of the many mines in the area in the 1980s, creating a great need in the community. The focus for Silver Valley Fuller Center is to continue building new homes and instituting the Greater Blessing program in hopes of serving many within their own homes.
