About Us

“Everyone -- all of us, every last person on God's earth -- deserves decent shelter. It speaks to the most basic of human needs -- our home -- the soil from which all of us, every last person, either blossoms or withers."
Millard Fuller (1935 - 2009)
Founder, The Fuller Center for Housing

Our 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 Fuller Center, a 501(c)(3) Christian non-profit, has been evaluated by the top charity watchdogs and received highest ratings.

Guidestart Platinum Participant

Our rides have raised well over $3 million, introduced countless new friends to the mission, and led to the creation of several new Fuller Centers. We live simply as we go and depend on the hospitality of host churches, which has allowed 97% of the donations to be used for The Fuller Center rather than our own expenses. 

As a result, the homes of real people get built and renovated and the movement expands. At a time of increased divisions, our caring Christ-centered community brings people together to make the world a better place.

Why It Works

Partnership

Local Leadership

Built with Love

Homeowner families are full partners in the construction process, providing “sweat equity” and paying it forward to their neighbors on a no-interest basis. 

Every Fuller Center is initiated and led by locals so that the work is appropriate and the process empowers the community. 

Volunteers not only lower the cost of construction, but add “Love in the Mortar Joints” so that “every home is a sermon of God’s love,” as our Founder Millard Fuller put it.
