The Sebago Lakes Region Fuller Center for Housing, based in Windham, offers home repairs for seniors and veterans so they may remain in their homes safely and enjoy the quality of life they deserve.

“I am very grateful for this honor, and accept it on behalf of all our volunteers, who strive each day to make a genuine difference in the lives of others,” said Bruni. “As seniors and veterans age, many do not want to leave their cherished homes, although they are no longer able to care for them. They also often struggle with costs and with finding contractors available to make repairs. Through our pool of volunteers, we meet the home-repair needs of these individuals and families in our community. In turn, we reduce feelings of isolation and despair among the human beings involved.”

Launched in 2019, the Sebago Lakes Region Fuller Center for Housing is part of a national organization, the Fuller Center for Housing, started by Millard Fuller, the former founder of Habitat for Humanity. As the only Fuller Center in New England, it was founded in Windham, Maine, by five churches—Unity Center for Spiritual Growth, North Windham Union Church, Windham Hill UCC, Raymond Village Community Church, Faith Lutheran Church, and St, Joseph’s College. St Ann’s Episcopal Church of Windham later also joined.

It is a nonprofit organization that relies on an all-volunteer force to serve seniors and veterans in the communities of Raymond, Standish, and Windham.

The annual “20 Outstanding Women” Award is sponsored each year by the Portland Radio Group/Coast 93.1 FM and Hannaford Supermarkets, to celebrate and recognize women in Maine who make a significant impact in their community. Each selected woman was nominated by her peers, family, and friends, and will be spotlighted throughout March on Coast 93.1’s radio shows, website, and social media, including in a radio interview on the popular Blake Show with Kelly and Todd.

The “20 Outstanding Women” Awards will be offered in a private ceremony in March on the campus of the University of Southern Maine in Portland.
