FCH Homeowners Give Back

One of the unique things about the Fuller Center is that the homes are not just given to a family as a hand out. We like to call it a hand up. The homes are sold to the families at no profit and with no interest. The families’ monthly payment is often less than half of what they were paying to rent a rundown property or apartment.

Also, the family that will live in the home that is being built or renovated is chosen early in the process so that they can work alongside the volunteers to build or renovate their own home. This brings with it a sense of pride in their home and connects them forever with the organization. The homeowners are required to put in 350 “sweat equity” hours during the process. The families often work alongside our volunteers on workdays and many days in between, painting, hammering, measuring baseboards, and sweeping up after the volunteers. The homeowners put many, many hours of sweat and hard work into making a house their home.
