PARTICIPATING LEGACY BUILD PARTNERS

Current Millard Fuller Legacy Build projects run the gamut from repairs and rebuilds to new home construction in large and small locations. Some will be looking to host out-of-town volunteers, while others are focused on engaging volunteers from their local community. Here is what we know so far about participating projects.
