“If I can just get that, we can get this project finished,” he said Wednesday afternoon as nearby a group of five volunteers was busy sizing and preparing wood for a new porch.
The crew is part of a group of about 40 veteran Habitat for Humanity volunteers who have come together to form a new housing ministry for the Forsyth area.
Ingraham, a former construction leader for Habitat, left that organization this summer. Not long after, he began a local chapter of the Fuller Housing Ministry, a spinoff organization started in 2005 by Millard Fuller and his wife, Linda, who co-founded Habitat in 1976.
Ingraham contacted several Forsyth residents who had been faithful Habitat volunteers and asked if they would be interested in helping get the new group off the ground.
