The Illinois Valley Fuller Center for Housing is dedicated to assisting military veterans in the Tri-County area of Central Illinois with home repairs. Veterans who need help with the financial cost of repairs or the labor necessary to make the repairs can apply to the Illinois Valley Fuller Center's Home Repair Program. The application will be reviewed and if the scope of the work falls under our guidelines repairs will be made with no cost to the applicant.
Since beginning our Home Repair Program for Veterans in November 2013, we have completed 37 repairs at no cost to the Veteran. Repairs range from replacing porches to installing gutters, storm doors, security lights, and even cutting down a tree that threatened several houses. The repairs we have done have collectively saved our Veterans more than $40,000. In addition we have done more than 145 yard cleanups, with a savings of more than $12,000. Tri-County Veterans are eligible for our services. There is an application process and maximum income limits apply. To request an application contact us at 309-363-3737 or fill out the form under the"Get Help" tab on this site.
