The Fuller Center for Housing faith-driven and Christ-centered, promotes collaborative and innovative partnerships with individuals and organizations in an unrelenting quest to provide adequate shelter for all people in need worldwide.

This will include a discussion about poverty housing in the area, and the economic benefit of our “hand up-not a handout” approach to charity and how this builds a Fund for Humanity recycling homeowner payments to serve other people in need in the community. Churches do mission work by empowering the people they serve.
