Americus - The Fuller Center for Housing is already rebuilding 60 homes in the Shreveport, Louisiana area, and is now planning to revamp 100 homes along the Mississippi coast that had extensive flood damage, but are still structurally sound.

Millard Fuller says, "We plan to take teams of volunteers in there and rip out the sheet rock up to four or five feet. Redo the flooring, redo the wiring, and we think for an average of $5,000, $10,000, we can put a family back in a house."

The homeowners who receive help from the Fuller Center will not be legally obligated to repay them, but will be encouraged to donate, so that others can be helped.
