Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We would like for every community that has a housing need and people capable and interest in helping people to meet those needs join The Fuller Center and adopt the grass-roots, common-sense, Christian principles that have been so successful in empowering families around the world, thus breaking a cycle of dependence and poverty.

We believe that local leaders are best suited to determine how to help people in their own community, but we make available our expertise and help share knowledge that empower these leaders in effectively addressing housing problems in their community. We are particularly engaged with the church community, emphasizing the importance of putting faith into action.

With a growing Global Builders volunteer program, our international work is growing year after year. In the United States, more people are learning about our hand-up principles of partnership and want to start covenant partners in their communities. We have very low overhead at our headquarters and are focused on maximizing donors' gifts to put as many dollars to work in the field as possible.

We have partners with more than 3,600 families worldwide to help them have simple, decent homes. We have numerous places where we could do so much more with an increase in donations.
