Background:

Boundary County Fuller Center for Housing (BCFCH), formally Boundary County Habitat for Humanity, has been in existence since 1993. We are a Christian based, non-profit organization dedicated toward eliminating sub-standard housing in our community. We partner with families, faith groups, local businesses, community entities, individuals, and other non-profit organizations to provide decent, affordable housing for Boundary County families. Over 99 percent of all of our donated goods, services, and money goes directly towards the houses we build, and our mantra is to keep our overhead costs to the bare minimum. Since our inception, we have built 10 houses for families in need in our community. The average home is around 1,300sf with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and it costs us roughly $80,000 to build our homes. We are able to provide an interest-free, tailored mortgage to our Partner Families through our own revolving fund, thus allowing our families to afford home ownership. Partner Families are required to invest up to 500 hours of “sweat equity” in their own homes and are required to have a legitimate housing need, have a job OR steady source of income, and be able to support a tailored mortgage but NOT be able to qualify for a conventional loan. We are also a 501(c)3 organization with our own EIN that allows individuals and organizations to make tax deductible charitable contributions to our organization directly.

If you have any questions about our program, please feel free to contact Teresa Rae (208-946-6582), President of BCFCH. Visit our website at fullercenter.org/boundary-county-fuller-center-for-housing, and join us on FB at Boundary County Fuller Center for Housing for announcements and updates. We are excited to begin our next project as we continue to build a better community, one house and one family at a time!
