Building a House with Fuller Center for Housing

On March 25, 2008, the Advisory Council of Community Health Foundation took a trip to West Point, Georgia that brought us more satisfaction than our typical meeting. A group of eleven of us were about to embark on a mission of sorts… a mission to give a family hope by helping to build them a new home.

The Fuller Center for Housing, a non-profit organization founded by Millard and Linda Fuller, is in the process of working with the communities of West Point, Georgia, plus Valley and Lanett , Alabama, to eradicate sub-standard housing their region of the country called “The Valley”. The plan is to build 600 houses in the coming years to provide the people of The Valley with descent affordable housing. CHF has already taken part in donating funds to help build other houses in the region. On this day we took a more hands-on approach. We spent the day swinging hammers, using power saws and tape measures, making new friends and helping a deserving family. It was a beautiful, crisp day full of fellowship, laughter and hard work

The keys to the house were given to its new family the following week. We hope that they will enjoy their new home!
