Dr. Michele Williams, executive director of the Fuller Center for Housing in Delaware, said a primary reason for joining the Fuller Center is the international headquarters’ guiding principles that place emphasis on local decision-making rather than a top-down, bureaucratic approach.

“The Fuller Center believes that local leaders are in the best position to decide what our community needs and the most effective ways to address those needs,” said Williams. “They provide assistance and expertise while we promise to adhere to the simple, grassroots, Christian principles that guide the work. Ultimately, the goal is to help families help themselves. And the house is the basic building block of the family.”

Headquartered in Americus, Ga., the Fuller Center for Housing was founded in 2005 by Millard and Linda Fuller, the same couple who founded Habitat for Humanity in 1976. A 1996 recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Millard passed away in 2009, but Linda remains active in the ministry. Millard was succeeded as president by longtime friend and colleague David Snell, who continues to lead the international organization today.

The Fuller Center for Housing has received a 100 percent score for transparency and accountability from Charity Navigator and has earned GuideStar’s highest-level platinum rating for transparency.

The Fuller Center for Housing builds and repairs homes in over 80 U.S. communities and more than 20 countries around the world. 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.

More than 5,000 families have partnered with the Fuller Center to receive assistance.
