Tim DuBois

Also out working with Yvonne was Tim DuBois. I met Tim last year after the blitz had come and gone. In fact, so had Tim. After riding down from Minnesota with a group of strangers, Tim got back, packed up his tools and truck and headed back south to finish the work on the houses.

Tim decided to come to work on the project after spending time in Baton Rouge after the storms working in a Red Cross shelter. "I did what I could," he said. "But I wasn't swinging a hammer or mucking houses." So when he heard about the group headed south, he called and asked if there was still space on the bus.

After finishing his work in Shreveport last year Tim headed back to Minnesota, but in the last year has worked on Fuller Center projects in El Salvador and Alabama.
