Panama City

Fuller Center Disaster ReBuilders is a 501(c)(3) Christian organization dedicated to serving the victims of major disasters in the United States. We were organized in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and have supported rebuilding in all the major hurricanes since then. Our homeowners must be uninsured (no flood insurance) and low-income. We use volunteer labor to make our rebuilding effort more affordable. We're financed from donations and grants.

We are rebuilding in the communities around Panama City in Bay County, hard-hit by Hurricane Michael in 2018. We're excited about working in partnership with our long-time friends, Mercy Chefs. They're providing meals and accommodations for 25 of you each week. We’ll provide the construction leadership, tools and projects — and you provide the energy and passion for serving. You've seen the pictures, but this is definitely the closest thing to Katrina since 2005. One difference — very little flood damage, mostly big wind!

The registration fee is $175/week per individual; this includes room and board for the week. Our minimum age is 16. We plan for teams to arrive on Sunday and depart on Saturday. You will be rebuilding the interior of homes that were flooded. We have tools but ask teams to bring what they might have if they can do so.

In order to confirm your reservation, you can register online at http://fullercenter.org/disaster-rebuilders/ including paying your registration fee or mail a $175.00 deposit to the address below. If you’d prefer to accomplish a group registration, we can provide forms for roster and skills.
