What We Do
Castle Country Fuller Center’s mission is simple. We are a faith-driven, Christian centered organization. We believe that every man, woman, and child should have a decent, safe, and affordable home to live in. A Brush With Kindness is our community program offering repairs and small renovations to approved applicants in need. We build with people in need regardless of race or religion. We welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds to come together to improve homes, communities, and hope.
The United Nations estimates that more than one billion people around the world live in substandard housing — including millions in the United States. The Castle Country Fuller Center for Housing, promotes collaborative and innovative partnerships with individuals and organizations in an unrelenting quest to provide adequate shelter for all people in need in Carbon and Emery Counties. We would like to assist as many as we can, in a timely manner, which includes our elderly, our veterans, our disabled, and all low income families that cannot get a conventional loan otherwise, to improve their living environment in a manner that improves their lives. Many of these same folks have simple repairs like ramps, railings, porches, window repair, door repairs that we can easily take care of and ease their burden.
How Do You Accomplish Your Work?
The Castle Country Fuller Center For Housing creates partnerships within our local communities in Carbon and Emery counties to bring together churches, schools, businesses and civic organizations to build and/or repair decent, affordable homes in partnership with people who are unable to secure adequate housing by conventional means. The Castle Country Fuller Center is a covenant partner of the Fuller Center for Housing. We work with other service-oriented organizations and countless volunteers to build and repair homes. We are currently working on re-energizing our repair program and saving funds for a future home build. All homeowners work hand-in-hand with volunteers to build their own homes, which are then sold to them on terms they can afford, based on the Biblical idea of no-profit, no-interest loans. With some smaller renovation projects, an innovative payment program called A Brush With Kindness is utilized, whereby recipients promise to repay the loan amount. They decide the monthly amount they can afford to repay and the period of time (2 years or less) that it will take to repay the cost of repairs. We are committed to good stewardship and work hard to keep our administrative costs low and to select our recipient families wisely. This helps to ensure that the vast majority of your tax-deductible gifts go toward building and repairing homes for those in need.
THE BIKE ADVENTURE
The Bike Adventure rides support The Fuller Center for Housing’s efforts to end poverty housing worldwide. The Fuller Center builds and repairs homes with partner families who participate in the work and pay the costs forward on a no-profit, no-interest basis they can afford. The impact reaches whole communities.
The good news is that they have chosen the Castle Country Fuller Center to stop and do a build day with us. They will arrive in Castle Dale on June 13, 2023, which means they will actually travel 87 miles that day. On the 14th, they will ride to Price where they will stay for 2 nights. They will leave the Price area on the 16th, making their way to Provo.
