Thanks to our wonderful volunteers, supporters and our great leaders in the Chattahoochee Valley, the 2019 Millard Fuller Legacy Build was a tremendous success. Eleven families, including those who lost homes and loved ones in the March 3 Beauregard tornado, now have simple, decent places to live. Scroll for photos, video and story links from the build. Also, look for a “Christmas Joy” special this December on The Hallmark Channel. It was filmed on location during the build and will feature your work and some of our partner families.
