Fuller Center dedicates first home | News
The Fuller Center for Housing in Macon dedicated its first home for a family in need.
The organization's mission is to repair and renovate homes that are then sold to families with no interest. The family also volunteers with part of the building.
Their first home was on 1030 Birch Street in Macon. After months of work on the home, the house was sold to the family of Teresa West and Abusom Wan Osazuwa.
Osazuwa was injured on the job, leaving Teresa to work two jobs. It's why their family was named as one that deserved the house. The Fuller Center says they haven't settled on a price yet, but says it will likely be between $40,000 and $45,000.
"They're an awesome family, they work really hard," says Dianne Fuller. She says the family worked at least 3,000 hours on the home along with other volunteer groups.
The Fuller Center says it wants to find other homes in the Napier area to revitalize to give other families a chance at what they call a "hand up."
