Partnering with veterans
We are proud to partner with our nation’s veterans — something you help us do more and more each year through your gifts. The Fuller Center for Housing is such a good fit for our veteran homeowner partners because veterans are not looking for a handout. They are proud, and our partnership approach allows them to retain their dignity. Even homeless veterans merely want a hand up and a fair shake. We offer that helping hand, and they respond like other Fuller Center homeowners — by paying it forward. They have dedicated their lives to serving others and for that reason they are especially happy to see their zero-percent-interest, no-profit-made mortgage payments go into a fund to help others also get a hand up into simple, decent homes.
