The Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa organization has made it their mission to become a dynamic part of stopping crime not only in our parish but throughout the world.  The Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa are doing a great job of meeting their goals in helping to stop crime throughout the Tangipahoa Parish and Louisiana.

These figures are for this year alone.  Very impressive, don’t you think?  Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa will host its 1st Annual Awards Luncheon on June 19th at Chesterton Square in Ponchatoula.  I wanted to post this announcement today so that you would have plenty of time to mark you calendars and show your support for an organization that does so much to improve our community.

Northshore Fuller Center Announces First Project

May 14, 2009

I want to do a quick follow-up to last week’s blog about the Northshore Fuller Center.  The Northshore Fuller Center has broken ground for its first project.  Delores Black, who lost her home during Hurricane Katrina, will have a new place to live.  The Northshore Fuller Center and its volunteers will be rebuilding her home.  Delores has been trying to rebuild her home for three long years.  With help from family and friends, Dolores saved $65,000.  She discovered that, even with the money she had saved and the plans a friend drew up for her, she still could not afford to rebuild.
 
Her daughter, Beverly Black, approached the director, Charlie Park of the Webster Parish covenant partner of Fuller Center, to ask if the center could help her mother.  Beverly received the good news that David and Tamara Danel were opening the Northshore Fuller Center in Hammond.  After hearing her story, David and Tamara agreed that this was the perfect “first project”.  Delores Black was in for the surprise of her life.  Tamara and Beverly made the official announcement on Mother’s Day, during services at the Greater Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church of Belle Chasse, Delores’ home church.

The Northshore Fuller Center is off to a great start.  I am sure we will hear more about their efforts to improve our community and help our neighbors in the future.  Congratulations to Delores Black and to the Northshore Fuller Center.
 
If you would like to be a part of this effort or want to know more about the Northshore Fuller Center, give Tamara Daniel a call at (985) 507-0732.  You may also contact the center by e-mail at northshorela@fullercenter.org.

Northshore Fuller Center Needs You

May 6, 2009

The Northshore Fuller Center has opened its doors in Hammond.  The Northshore Fuller Center is a non-profit organization spearheaded by David and Tamara Danel that serves the housing needs of low-income families in the parishes of Tangipahoa, St. Tammany and Livingston.
 
As with most non-profit organizations, the Northshore Fuller Center needs help.  Before you get your checkbook out or look to see if your budget can manage another donation, consider giving your time.  The Northshore Fuller Center needs you.  You are a valuable commodity within yourself.  Volunteers are needed to serve as board members and to serve on various committees.  College students to retirees, you are needed; whether you can pick up a phone or swing a hammer, you are needed.  There are talents that you may not even know you possess; David and Tamara will be happy to help you discover and develop them.
 
Housing is more than just a building, it is more than just a roof over our heads and it is more than a shelter from the elements.  Homes are more than just sticks and bricks.  Houses are our homes, the place we laugh, cry, love and live.  Homes are refuges for our children.  This is where we express our own personal artistry through our decor and landscaping.  Homes are one of the very basic needs of every human; a place to call their own.  Our homes influence what we think of ourselves and what we can accomplish in life.  Home ownership brings pride and stability to a community.  The Northshore Fuller Center for Housing wants to make home ownership a reality for over 250 families in the Tangipahoa, St. Tammany and Livingston parishes.
 
The Northshore Center realizes that there is more to home ownership than just owning the home.  For many on a fixed or low-income budget, routine maintenance repairs to their home are more than they can manage.  The Northshore Fuller Center will be helping homeowners to help themselves with maintenance improvements to their homes.  Well maintained homes benefit everyone in a community.
 
David and Tamara were personally requested by Mr. Milliard Fuller to establish the Northshore Fuller Center, which is the 50th covenant partner for the Fuller Center for Housing and the third covenant partner in Louisiana.  Mr. Fuller’s vision was to provide homes for every family in the world with dignity.  Rather than give them charity, he gave them pride of ownership.  Habitat for Humanity and the Fuller Center for Housing provide homeowners a means to purchase their homes or pay for the needed repairs by giving them loans to match their ability to pay.  These loans are interest free and no financing costs are factored into the loans.
 
Help change the world one home at a time; call Tamara at 985-507-0732.
