Minister Lee Jeter, is Sr. Executive Director of the Fuller Center for Housing of Northwest, Louisiana.

Minister Lee Jeter is a man on fire, a man on a mission.
He feels called by God to help people lift themselves out of poverty. But this minister does more than preach about it. His organization has built 40 new homes for poor, struggling families in the Allendale area. His group is committed to building a total of 60 homes in Allendale. Then he wants to start in the Cedar Grove area.

The Fuller Center for Housing of Northwest Louisiana, a faith driven and Christ centered ministry, offers an opportunity for partnerships between local philanthropy and the Church. “We are interested in promoting economic development, eliminating substandard housing, improving the quality of life and striving for a better world among low-income families,” says Jeter.

The Fuller Center was created by Millard Fuller, the founder of Habitat for Humanity in December of 2005. The initial purpose of the Fuller Center was to provide new homes for low income families who were displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Many of the recipients are Katrina survivors; however the program expanded to serve people in general who live at or below the poverty line.
The Fuller Center’s approach is comprehensive. Their objective is to improve entire communities by helping responsible people become financially stable owners of homes in low-income communities.

First, they purchase tracts of adjudicated properties from the city. The center is careful to purchase four or five lots together to avoid building a new or renovated home next to an abandoned or dilapidated property. This also allows the center to put enough families in a neighborhood to make an impact.
Fuller Center then locates persons who may have financial challenges but are willing to improve themselves and become home owners. The families must meet certain criteria, which include a stable income and a credit review that shows at least a willingness to pay bills based on income.

Participants who are accepted must agree to pay one fourth of the closing cost, which is generally $1,100. They are given ten months to generate this amount while receiving homeownership training and credit counseling, which are requirements. Participants must agree to put 350 hours of “sweat equity” into the building of the homes.

Each home recipient family must actually help build the home they are going to occupy. They can enlist the help of friends or church members to provide up to 150 hours of this labor. Of course they are supervised by professionals in whatever work they do. “We’re trying to do more than give them a handout. We want them to have a sense of ownership and responsibility for the entire process,” Jeter explained. “We even hope that the skills they learn from helping to build the homes will enable them to do some of the repairs that any home needs as time passes,” he added.

Pacific Northwest

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written
language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.

Learning by listening is a great way to:
– increases imagination and understanding
– improves your listening skills
– improves your own spoken accent
– learn while on the move
– reduce eye strain

Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through
audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio
while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using
a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

SUMMARY
=======
The Pacific Northwest (PNW), sometimes referred to as Cascadia, is a geographic region in western North America bounded by the Pacific Ocean to the west and (loosely) by the Cascade Mountain Range on the east. Though no official boundary exists, the most common conception includes the Canadian province of British Columbia and the U.S. states of Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Broader conceptions reach north into Southeast Alaska and Yukon, south into northern California, and east of the Continental Divide to include Western Montana and parts of Wyoming. Narrower conceptions may be limited to the northwestern US, or to the coastal areas west of the Cascade and Coast mountains. The variety of definitions can be attributed to partially overlapping commonalities of the region’s history, culture, geography, society, and other factors.
The Northwest Coast is the coastal region of the Pacific Northwest, and the Northwest Plateau (also commonly known as “the Interior” in British Columbia and the Inland Empire in the United States) is the inland region. The term “Pacific Northwest” should not be confused with the Northwest Territory (also known as the Great Northwest, a historical term in the United States) or the Northwest Territories of Canada.
The region’s largest metropolitan areas are Greater Seattle, Washington, with 3.8 million people; Greater Vancouver, British Columbia, with 2.5 million people; and Greater Portland, Oregon, with 2.4 million people.A key aspect of the Pacific Northwest is the US–Canada international border, which the United States and the United Kingdom established at a time when the region’s inhabitants were composed mostly of indigenous peoples. The border—in two sections, along the 49th parallel south of British Columbia and the Alaska Panhandle west of northern British Columbia—has had a powerful effect on the region. According to Canadian historian Ken Coates, the border has not merely influenced the Pacific Northwest—rather, “the region’s history and character have been determined by the boundary”.
