Volunteers raising two new houses near Millard Fuller’s hometown

Fuller Center for Housing founder Millard Fuller was born and raised in Lanett, Alabama. Adjacent to that city are Valley, Alabama, and West Point, Georgia. Two new houses are going up in each of those communities with work having started this month and completion slated for next month. Dozens of volunteers in Valley from First Baptist Church of Valley and New Birth Ministries needed only two days to raise the walls and get Chattahoochee Fuller Center Project’s 41st new house dried in. Meanwhile, the slab is being poured today in West Point on the CFCP’s 42nd new home, with Mayor Steve Tramell serving as the house captain when he leads a crew of volunteers from Norboard and Knauf as they dry in that home later this week.
