The First Christian Church of Mayfield’s Community Engagement/Response Group is supporting the Mayfield-Graves County Fuller Center for Housing in providing safe, affordable homes for Mayfield residents in the wake of the Dec. 10, 2021 tornado. More than 400 homes were lost within the city, which is home to fewer than 10,000 people.

The Mayfield/Graves County Fuller Center for Housing is a Kentucky nonprofit 50(c)(3) and 509(a)(3) corporation of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and was incorporated within Kentucky in January, 2022. We are presently completing the merger of the local Habitat for Humanity assets into our organization. We are in partnership with the International Fuller Center for Housing headquartered in Americus, Georgia. We are unashamedly Christian, ecumenical and seeking to put the “Love of the Lord” in action by providing affordable, quality housing, eliminating poverty housing, and rehabilitating damaged housing starting in Mayfield and Graves County.
