The Castle Country Fuller Center for Housing Program is picking up where Habitat for Humanity left off and this new program is aimed to assist eligible residents with various home projects. Castle Country Radio was able to sit down with Organization Representatives, Kathy Diamanti and Zena Robinson to learn more about the Castle Country Fuller Center for Housing Program.
“Well most of all we want to help our local families who may not be able to help themselves and that’s with home repair projects like porches, ramps, doors, windows. We are looking at opening up that in to indoor projects maybe, we’ve done a few roofs, so we’re just, really who every has a need, we would like them to contact us, and we’ll do it if we can,” said Diamanti. Their mission statement is 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.
There is an application process and requirements one must meet in order for Castle Country Fuller Center for Housing Program to determine whether the individual is eligible for assistance. “We work with the elderly, the handicapped, Veterans, anybody that just can’t do it themselves. We will look at it on an individual basis and just do what every we can,” stated Diamanti. All decisions about family selection are managed by the board of directors of Castle Country Fuller Center for Housing. Income requirements vary from community to community. However, there are three basic criteria that everyone uses:
– Applicant need (can’t qualify for conventional loans)
– Applicant willingness to partner (sweat equity – volunteer hours required)
– Applicant ability to pay the mortgage on their new home OR ReNew project OR ability to donate through their Greater Blessing project.

If there’s no one in the office you’ll leave a message. We have a Facebook page, we also have a web page called Castle Country Fuller Center which you can access that for the applications,” explained Robinson. If you would rather make a monetary donation or volunteer for upcoming projects, please contact the office to make those arrangements.
