The founder of Habitat for Humanity is teaching men at one South Georgia church how to head a contemporary family.
Habitat for Humanity Founder and president, Millard Fuller, spoke to the congregation at the Episcopal Church of St. John and St. Mark this morning.
He gave the men tips on how to support and foster a nurturing and safe environment for their families.
Fuller says, "I believe that every household needs a mother and father. When men take off, their woman have to do the best they can under difficult circumstances."
Fuller started Habitat for Humanity in 1976. The international headquarters are in Americus, Georgia.
