T'ville unveils Housing and Resource Center


One south Georgia city is ready to provide a new home for non-profit organizations looking for office space.

The city of Thomasville recently unveiled a new 3,000 square foot Housing and Resource Center.

It was funded by a $270,000 Community Development Block Grant.

City officials say the goal is for the Center to serve as a "one-stop-shop" for folks seeking assistance with a variety of needs.

"Part of the goal is for them to be in a setting where they can collaborate with others. The rent will be extremely affordable. For example a small office space that is about 12 by 12 in size is going to rent for about $200 a month including utilities," said Housing Administrator Charlotte Christian.

The first two tenants are The Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity.
