Who we are

The Statesboro community is proud to support our local Police Department and Fire Department. Every day these brave men and women put on
their uniform not knowing what event will unfold with one goal in mind, to serve and protect. In appreciation for their sacrifice and service the
Downtown Statesboro Development Authority, DSDA, along with community partners are working on neighborhood revitalization projects in the downtown area. We are working hard to turn neglected rental property into proud home ownership. With this in mind, we plan to start the project by making the first few homes affordable dwellings for our public servants.

A Peek into our process


Identify the homes

Seek out homes within the downtown area and the Blue Mile that could be renovated as part of this program.


Secure the homes

Either purchase the identified home(s) or have the home(s) donated to the program.


Recruit the volunteers and donations.

Once we’ve secured the homes, the renovations start with the help of volunteers and donations from our community partners.


Remodel the home.

Once we have donations pledged, our volunteers and community partners start remodeling the home!


Welcome a new family!

Once the home is complete, the home will be available to purchase to any one of our members of our local law enforcement, fire department or EMTs.

How you can get involved

To make the Homes for Heroes project possible we need your help. The homes have a good structure and by remodeling them we will keep the historical integrity of the neighborhood however they all need a complete makeover.
There are 3 ways you can help - time, money and donations.
