Fuller Center Disaster ReBuilders Return to the Coast

All this week, a non-profit organization will be on the Gulf Coast rebuilding houses that were destroyed by Katrina.
The Fuller Center Disaster ReBuilders was started by the same group of people who founded Habitat for Humanity. After Hurricane Katrina, the center came down to build and rebuild over 100 homes in east Biloxi.
The group thought the ten year anniversary was the perfect time to revisit the area and help even more families make a post-Katrina comeback. Site Leader Peter Salemme said, “We thought ten year anniversary would be nice. We like building houses and any excuse to build a house. It’s a big reunion week for everybody here. A lot of volunteers have been here and bring groups from all over the county. So, it’s a good reunion to see everyone again.”
Several of the homes built this week will be dedicated this coming Friday.
