Durant Woman Receives New Home

By  | 

Officials from the Southern Oklahoma Development Alliance, along with other agencies, presented Susan Jones of Durant with a brand new home. But Jones had no idea that the house would be completely furnished with everything from furniture to house slippers, with the help of Adult Protective Services.

Before Monday, Jones lived in a house that had been condemned by the city years ago. She had to stay with friends to shower and stay warm.

SODA officials say this home is just one of four awarded to residents in need from Oklahoma's Housing Finance Agency.

Jones found she qualified about a year ago, and she knows exactly what she's going to do to settle in to her new home.

"I'm going to go in there, put on my robe, take a hot bubble bath, and rest."
