Habitat For Humanity Teams Up With Chemical Bank Volunteers
Millard and Linda Fuller started Habitat for Humanity in 1976 in Americus, Georgia. The first house was constructed that same year in San Antonio, Texas, the location of Habitat’s first affiliate. As the fifth anniversary of Habitat approached there was a growth explosion with 14 U.S. and 7 international affiliates. A total of 342 houses had been built. To date, Habitat for Humanity has dedicated over 500,000 homes.
HFH established an affiliate in Alpena in 1989. Since then, 75 families have received new-construction homes or extensively rehabbed existing homes in Alpena and Alcona counties. Here at Habitat for Humanity Northeast Michigan, we truly live by and believe in our affiliates’ vision of A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
