New Name, Same Values and Mission
The local affordable housing ministry formerly known as Pike County Habitat for Humanity is now operating as a covenant partner of The Fuller Center for Housing. Pike County Fuller Center for Housing’s mission remains the same – extending a hand-up to families in need of simple, decent and affordable places to live.
The Fuller Center for Housing – headquartered in Americus Georgia – was founded in 2005 by Millard and Linda Fuller, the same couple who founded Habitat for Humanity in 1976. The Fullers founded the nonprofit as re-commitment to the grass-roots, Christian principles with which they launched their affordable housing movement in the early 1970’s. We invite you to (Fuller Center.org) website to gain full knowledge and history of the mission.
The Fuller Center for Housing builds and repairs homes and homeowners are full partners in the building process – contributing sweat equity as they work alongside volunteers and then repaying the costs of materials on terms they can afford, with no interest charged or profit made. Those repayments stay in the local community to help others get the same hand-up.
Through the Pike County Habitat for Humanity more than 12 homes have been built and now the Pike County Fuller Center for Housing is excited about expanding our capacity in the future with your help. We are also excited about Amite County and Walthall County joining our mission. Would you please support us and be an ongoing partner in this mission of faith to provide affordable housing for those in need in our community.
In the Spirit of Christian Partnership,
Pike County Fuller Center for Housing Board of Directors
