AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

A man who helped hundreds of thousands of people around the world get homes will get a permanent honor in Americus. Spring Street will be renamed after Millard Fuller.     

Fuller helped found Habitat for Humanity International, which builds houses in more than 115 countries.     

After leaving Habitat, he started the Fuller Center for Housing.    

"We're inviting the affiliates and the partners to come to this grand historical event, because this will be where to great men intersect. Dr. King, and Millard Fuller, who did things to changed the world," said Jacob Battle.     

Fuller died in February 2009 at age 74.  The city will rename the street in June.
