Tifton- South Georgia's United Way has a new home.

This house was renovated in memory of Betty Jo Roach, the United Way director for 26 years. She died almost a year ago. Most everything needed to open the new center was donated.

"We got a great response from local businesses and individuals who have donated their time and funds and also materials to help renovate this facility," said United Way President Chris Efaw. "There's so many people that we need to thank."

The building will also house the United Way administrative offices.
