ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

After nearly 14 months of construction, an organization dedicated to helping senior citizens is finally moving into its new building.  

The SOWEGA Council in Aging's operations are setting up in the organizations new centralized facility on N. Jefferson St. and W. Society Ave.  

The roughly $8 Million project has been in the works since 2007, but began construction last fall.  

Executive Director Kay Hind said administrative workers began moving into new offices on Monday. 

"But we're still working.  That's the thing.  The services are still going on.  And everybody is carrying on their responsibilities," said Hind.    

Construction workers are still adding the finishing touches.  The Council on Aging will showcase the building during their Empty Bowls fundraiser later this month. Senior Centers and Meals on Wheels are expected to move in within the next three weeks.
