About Us

Ginger Ford Northshore Fuller Center for Housing is a faith-driven, Christ-centered housing ministry which uses volunteers to build and repair houses for low-income, elderly and disabled residents of Tangipahoa and Livingston Parishes. We are supported by The Fuller Shop, the ReUse Store and The Rabbit Hole thrift stores located at 955 S. Morrison Blvd. in Hammond.
FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPLES
We at the Fuller Center for Housing believe that:
We are part of a God movement, and movements don't just stop.
We have been called to this housing ministry; we didn't just stumble into it.
We are unashamedly Christian, and enthusiastically ecumenical.
We aren't a church but we are a servant of the Church.
We are faith driven, knowing that after we've done all we can do the Lord will help finish the job—something that requires us to stretch beyond our rational reach.
We are a grassroots ministry, recognizing that the real work happens on the ground in communities around the world through our covenant partners, so a large, overseeing bureaucracy isn’t needed.
We try to follow the teachings of the Bible and believe that it says that we shouldn't charge interest of the poor, so we don't. Government has a role in our work in helping set the stage, but that we shouldn't look to it as a means to fund the building of home
