— The Moffat County Fuller Center for Housing is looking for low-income homeowners of all ages including veterans and/or the disabled in need of a little help with their homes.

“People who need help should get their applications in as soon as possible,” said Chapter President Neil Folks.

The local chapter will again be part of the Fuller Center Bike Adventure. For eight of the past 10 years members of the Fuller Center have ridden across America stopping in six cities to lend a helping hand.

“Craig has become one of the more popular stops. We seem to do a good job of welcoming them and give them real projects to work on,” Folks said.

Riders are expected to arrive in Craig on June 23 followed by a workday on June 24. A welcoming picnic is planed for the evening of June 23.

“The public is welcome to join the riders to listen to their stories about the bike ride adventure,” Folks said.

Last year about 40 people in Moffat County, most in the city of Craig, were helped with repairs.

“We stained porches and railings, installed handrails and bathroom rails, painted roof edges and painted trim around doors and windows. We also helped with yard work, trimming bushes and grass,” Folks said.

Major housing repair projects are carried out through a separate Fuller Center program called “Greater Blessings.”

This year, riders will also help to complete the finishing touches on the Fuller House being built at 731 Yampa Ave.

“Investment homes are not included. The homeowner needs to provide the materials and we will provide the labor,” Folks said.

Applications are available at Brass Key Realty, or to volunteer call Neil Folks at 970-326-8726.
