The Northern Virginia Fuller Center for Housing was established in March of 2008 in Alexandria, Va. Our goal has been to establish partnerships with individuals and community groups to build and rehabilitate homes for people in need. Our service area includes Arlington, Fairfax, and Prince William Counties. Over the past three years we have completed eleven building projects for low income families.
Northern Virginia Fuller Center starts first Military Builders Program:
Northern Virginia Fuller Center for Housing has implemented a Military Builders Program that will cultivate relationships with local military installations and engage them in the work of the covenant partner. The members of the military builders committee represent a number of different installations, demonstrating the spirit of ecumenism. This committee helps plan and organize builds for veterans who are proximate to local installations.
First Military Builders Project: February 28-April 1, 2011
The addition for the Himan family was the first project under the Military Builders. In September 2009 at age 25, Joshua Himan was a Marine Lance Corporal, when his Humvee hit an improvised explosive device in Hellmund Province, Afghanistan, forever changing his life. The explosion severely injured Joshua’s spinal cord, leaving him a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the chest down. Joshua left his ability to live independently on a battlefield in Afghanistan – a warrior’s sacrifice.
The Northern Virginia Fuller Center for Housing has raised the funds, secured subcontractors, and coordinated volunteers and just completed the addition to the Himan family. The home included an accessible bathroom for easy bathing, wide doorways and hallways to allow for easy transport, and a master suite with sufficient space for Joshua. View the latest photos of the Himan family project.
