Millard Fuller - Habitat for Humanity

Jak Tichenor talks with Millard Fuller, the founder of Habitat for Humanity and more recently, the Fuller Center for affordable housing. Fuller discusses how Habitat for Humanity started with the simple premise that people of all backgrounds, races, and religions could build houses together in partnership with families in need. Since its founding, Habitat has built more than 200,000 houses around the world, providing more than 1,000,000 people in more than 3,000 communities with safe, decent, and affordable shelter. Fuller's newest project, the Fuller Center, promotes collaborative and innovative partnerships with individuals and organizations around the country to build affordable housing. In Illinois, the Fuller Center is currently working with Lutheran Social Services of Illinois and the Illinois Department of Corrections to build pre-fabricated housing components that can be used to help low-income families around the United States, including victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Visit Jackson-Union County’s Habitat for Humanity online to find out more about how you can get involved in our area.
