About 65,000 families are in need of housing in Armenia, with many living in metal shipping containers or living in the basements of half-built houses due to not being able to finish them because of the sudden economic downturn in the 1990s. Since the launch of the Fuller Center Armenia in 2008, more than 250 families in 11 communities have been provided with safe, decent, and affordable housing.
Volunteers in the Global Builders Trip to Armenia will have the unique opportunity to work side-by-side with the homeowners and other locals to build these new homes. In addition to providing safe housing, these trips provide locals with jobs, help support the local economy, and create a life-changing experience for all involved.

About The Fuller Center for Housing
701 S. Martin Luther King Blvd., Americus, GA 31719, US
The Fuller Center for Housing, faith-driven and Christ-centered, promotes collaborative and innovative partnerships with individuals and organizations in an unrelenting quest to provide adequate shelter for all people in need worldwide.
We at the Fuller Center for Housing believe that:
We are part of a God movement, and movements don't just stop.
We have been called to this housing ministry; we didn't just stumble into it.
We are unashamedly Christian, and enthusiastically ecumenical.
We aren't a church but we are a servant of the Church.
We are faith driven, knowing that after we've done all we can do the Lord will help finish the job--something that requires us to stretch beyond our rational reach.
We are a grassroots ministry, recognizing that the real work happens on the ground in communities around the world through our covenant partners, so a large, overseeing bureaucracy isn’t needed.
We try to follow the teachings of the Bible and believe that it says that we shouldn't charge interest of the poor, so we don't. Government has a role in our work in helping set the stage, but that we shouldn't look to it as a means to fund the building of home.
