This Millard Fuller Legacy Build goes back to where it all began
Millard Fuller Legacy Builds honor a man who lived his life as a true Christian servant and a man who not only committed himself to doing what he could to build a better world but who used his knack for inspiring others to lead them down similar paths of selfless service. It was only fitting that the very first Legacy Build after his death in 2009 was in his hometown of Lanett, Alabama.

The host Chattahoochee Fuller Center Project has hosted Legacy Builds three times since then — in Valley, Alabama; in Lee County, Alabama; and last year in West Point, Georgia. This year, October 9-14, the Legacy Build returns to Lanett. The homes we build during the week will bring the CFCP's new home total to an impressive 75 homes! You can be part of making that milestone happen!

Our host church will be Pilgrim Baptist Church (420 North 12th Avenue Lanett, AL 36863), which is on the same street as the build. There will be a kickoff dinner and celebration there on Sunday evening with dinner served at the church at 5:30 p.m. after the Monday-Thursday build days. Dedications are planned for 3 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 14. All times are Eastern Daylight Time.

Free volunteer lodging will be provided by Plant City Methodist Church 110 East 18th Street Lanett, AL). For those preferring to stay at a hotel, we have secured a special rate at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Lanett. There are two ways guests can make a reservation: 
  1. Call the hotel directly: 334-576-5400, use code FCH
  2. Or visit www.my-event.hilton.com/fullercenterforhousingoct2022/

We will have more information as we get closer to the build, but we wanted to get the registration information in your hands as soon as we had these details finalized because we know many of you have been inquiring. We appreciate your enthusiasm and your willingness to volunteer as we continue to honor Millard's legacy.

New small homes a big deal for desperate seniors in Lanett, Ala.
