The Chattahoochee Fuller Center Project is in the midst of its busiest year ever with much of the intensity driven by the need to help families in Beauregard, Alabama, who were impacted by the March 3 EF-4 tornado that devastated the community. On Saturday, the CFCP dedicated its fourth and fifth new homes in Beauregard — the construction of both sponsored and led by the Church of the Highlands’ Auburn campus. Two more are going up next month in Beauregard, along with 11 scheduled for the Millard Fuller Legacy Build that begins Sept. 29. (Registration is open now. Click here to learn more.)
On Sunday, a major home renovation led by Refuge Point Church was dedicated for a visually impaired man in West Point, Georgia, with much of the work led by Mayor Steve Tramell. The project also got an influx of help from Wittenberg University students who spent their spring break working with the CFCP and arrived one day before the nearby tornado, giving them an opportunity to assist in the cleanup there, as well.
