Linda Fuller  

     Always a champion for women’s issues, Linda is a tireless crusader for the welfare of women wherever they live. In an attempt to help women better understand the business of building and owning their own homes, Linda originated the FIRST LADIES’ BUILD (where wives of the U.S. presidents and state governors come together to build homes along side other women.) now used worldwide at Habitat International. Under her leadership, thousands upon thousands of women work shoulder to shoulder to create affordable housing for sisters everywhere.
