As it was throughout the United States, Public Housing in Warner Robins was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities.

Public housing comes in all sizes and types, from scattered single family houses to high rise apartments for elderly families.

The Warner Robins Housing Authority has 430 units of public housing in the City of Warner Robins and 40 units under the Houston County Housing Authority.

The 430 units of public housing are located throughout the City. The first Public Housing Community, T.J. Calhoun Homes, was built in 1960 and was named after Mr. T. J. Calhoun who was a bank loan officer at Citizens State Bank. Cam Campbell Homes was built in 1960 and was named after Mr. Cam Campbell who was the first black Sherriff in Houston County. Approximately five years later, Oscar Thomie Homes was built and named after Mr. Oscar Thomie who was the 2nd president of the NAACP of Houston County. Kemp Harrison Homes is the only senior community under the Warner Robins Housing Authority. Kemp Harrison was built in 1972 and was named after the then Mayor of Warner Robins. Jimmy Rosenberg Homes was built in 1977 and was named after Mr. Jimmy Rosenberg who was the president of the Chamber of Commerce.
