Habitat for Humanity International was founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller. Today, Habitat for Humanity is a true world leader in addressing the issues of poverty housing. The concept that grew into Habitat for Humanity International was born at Koinonia Farm, a small, interracial, Christian community outside of Americus, Georgia. Koinonia Farm was founded in 1942 by farmer and biblical scholar Clarence Jordan. At Koinonia Farm, Jordan and Fuller developed the concept of partnership housing. The concept centered on those in need of adequate shelter working side by side with volunteers to build simple, decent houses.
