The Fuller Center for Housing is a non-profit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry dedicated to eliminating poverty housing worldwide. The Fuller Center works through local partnerships that are formed with communities all over the world, including Pignon, Haiti! Many families own their own land and begin purchasing materials in order to build their home over time, but need a helping hand and an opportunity to expedite the process for them and their kids.
The Fuller Center for Housing Mission Trip to Haiti is in Pignon, a community of about 30,000 located in the Central Plateau of Haiti, established by a French tradesman in 1699 as on outpost on the border between the French controlled west and the Spanish-controlled east. Renowned for the beauty of its hillsides, it is yet in one of the poorest regions of Haiti. Families traditionally survive and earn income by traveling to their nearby fields, where they grow their own food as well as sugar cane for selling. We also build for families with underpaid professionals like teachers and nurses.
Trips last one to two weeks and groups can choose what dates work best for them. We are able to host teams all year around. If you are an individual looking to join a trip that is already set-up you can visit our upcoming trips page to see our open trips listed below.
Fuller Center for Housing Mission Trips welcome volunteers ages 14+ and of all skill levels. Foreign-language skills are not necessary. We accept all who have a willingness to serve!
What We Will Do
Come ready for anything. Work could include laying block, clearing rubble, applying stucco, cutting rebar, mixing concrete, or other tasks. Every job is important. You’ll get the opportunity to immerse yourself in a different culture and work side by side with local families who are in need of decent, simple housing. You get to experience the joy of giving a family a beacon of hope by providing them with a home and helping them take a step towards a better life! While our work site is an active construction zone, it is also an active neighborhood with many families and kids which you will have the opportunity to interact with and get to know.
