The Tallahassee Fuller Center is again accepting applications for its Greater Blessings home repair program, with some limitations. Due to availability of financial resources and local jurisdiction permitting requirements, any request for a roof replacement will be based solely on the Board’s determination of our ability to secure and fund the services of a licensed roofing contractor to complete or supervise such projects.
