Habitat Officially Fires Founder

By Alabama Public Radio

Americus, GA – The board of Habitat for Humanity International has unanimously voted to affirm the firing of the group's founder, Alabama native Millard Fuller. But board members also expressed gratitude for his vision and years of service to the Christian home-building ministry. The board of the charity met in South Africa to affirm a January vote by Habitat's executive committee to fire Fuller as the group's president for alleged sexual harassment in 2003. Fuller denies that charge. The executive committee also fired Fuller's wife and Habitat co-founder, Linda. The Fullers' supporters have created a Web site and gathered 3,600 signatures from volunteers and donors requesting their reinstatement.
