Debra BrownDebra Brown opens the door to her new home.

Six formerly blighted homes on 5th Avenue in Vidalia are getting facelifts, and thanks to the contributions and hard work of some dedicated men, some veterans and women of domestic violence are getting a chance at being first-time owners.

Wednesday morning, Vidalia Mayor Doug Roper was onsite of the first home to be offered and said the project was a joint effort of the Urban Revitalization Group and the City of Vidalia.

“This is a new opportunity for some deserving people,” Mayor Roper said. “For the first time, some of them can now become homeowners.”

Debra Brown is the owner of the first house and could barely contain her enthusiasm at being a homeowner rather than a renter for the first time in her life.

“I’m so excited!” she declared. “I just can’t believe it.”

Leo Peebles, Rodney Williams, and James McLendon are part of the Urban Revitalization Group and six homes will be remodeled to form the Roy Lee Williams Complex. Peebles said, “These homes are for veterans and women who’ve been victims of domestic violence. They will be affordable, handicapped accessible. These are the first six, but we plan on doing more.”
