The Henry County Fuller Center for Housing, Inc. received it's 501 c (3) status letter on November 1, 2010. It's Founding Board includes, Shane Persaud, Beau Kelley, Don Dunlap, Bonnie Bergman, Chris Lockhart, Denese Rodgers, Mark Galey, Kirsten Fellows, Billy Dixon, Harlon Matthews, Jeff Bergman.
As its name implies the Family Selection Committee is charged with identifying partner families who will become the beneficiaries of the covenant partner’s work. The tasks involved in doing this include developing the selection criteria, identifying the population in need, promoting the program among that population, creating the application process, and processing applicants. Ultimately, the Selection Committee will recommend potential partner families for approval by the Board of Directors.
Faith Builders Committee
Every house that a Covenant Partner builds is a sermon of God’s love and an example of the teachings of Jesus Christ. It is natural, then, that Fuller Center Partners reach out to the churches and other faith communities in their service areas to create partnerships that serve to bless both parties. It is the task of the Faith Builders Committee to cultivate relationships with local faith communities and engage them in the work of the Covenant Partner.
Site Selection/Construction Committee
The Construction Committee is responsible for delivering the principal product of this ministry, the house. Because of the rich partnership opportunities that come from building, it should also include members with excellent people skills.
It is the responsibility of the Finance Committee to ensure that the Covenant Partner employs solid business principles and practices. This assures ongoing financial security and maximizes the number of families that can be housed.
