Our Response to COVID-19
Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this pandemic. It has hit everyone in a different way.
As you can imagine, with spring being our biggest building time, we have had to make adjustments to respect new social distancing measures. Usually during this time of the year, schools, congregations and companies are all out building and donating. This has all come to a stop and donations have fallen off drastically. Now, more than ever, we’re grateful for your support.
Even during these hard times, the Fuller Center DART (Disaster Assistance Recovery Team) has sprung to action.
Our team that responded to the floods in Mamaroneck, Hurricane Sandy and many other times of extreme need is once again active. In disaster response, everyone is unique and vital, from helping with food distribution to being there for families in need.
Over the past weeks we have given out food to restaurant workers, laborers and their families. We’ve supported a number of our Fuller Center families in Yonkers and beyond with food and supplies.
We accept food donations (non perishables) which, will be delivered to families by our mutual aid team.
Along with daily construction updates, during this time of Lent, Passover, and Easter, we will rise again with a scheduled BLITZ BUILD as part of our OneNY 2020 campaign and our response to kickoff a great year of building and love! We will hit the ground running when this is over.
Our OneNY2020 campaign needs your pledge and your gift now more than ever.

Changing Families' Lives
We don't just build homes, we build dreams
"My family and I have been homeowners for 6 months already! Time flies when you're having fun and it’s been great. It’s the greatest feeling to come home and say, 'This is ours.' My 4 year old son loves it. He runs all over the house and loves to play in our backyard."
- Henry Merlo
"A house is made of walls and beams, a home is built with love and dreams. Thank you to The Fuller Center for treating me like family."
- Ivan Arroyo Jr

Areas of Impact
This historic neighborhood of 60 plus homes is located in Yonkers. It was initially filled with workers homes for the factories of the nearby carpet mills, but recently many of the homes have fallen into disrepair.
We are excited to help rehab a veterans home in the area, while also helping to rehab multiple seniors’ homes who are adjacent neighbors. Additionally, our #NMU (No More Ugly) neighborhood revitalization efforts have helped transform the area. Thousands of hours of volunteer labor has been integral in creating planters, painting railings, creating pocket parks and more.
A once blighted neighborhood, we took these former crack houses and zombie homes off the tax roll and turned them into livable homes for veterans and families. All together, we have worked on more than 75 new and rehabbed homes in Yonkers. We have completely transformed whole neighborhoods with our NMU, No More Ugly, movement, and have saved millions of dollars of taxpayers’ money. We are beautifying neighborhoods and making dreams come true!
Do you have a plan in place in case of a disaster? We don't anticipate them but when they strike, it is always good to be prepared After 9/11, Mamaroneck floods, Hurricane Sandy, Katrina, the ongoing immigration crisis and more, having a plan and being ready to act is crucial for the wellbeing of your friends and family.
Fuller Center of NY volunteers are always ready in case something occurs. Here is some of what our volunteers have assisted with:
We also believe a National Disaster University should be created in New You so every utility worker can get a certification and a degree in disaster management.
This would help ensure the safety of our communities and improve disaster response. Jim Killoran presented the idea to the Moreland Commission in XXXX (need date here).
