Our Neighborhoods
All of our neighborhoods are located near community services such as schools and shopping areas. The Athens Transit bus line services all neighborhoods and, in many areas, the bus stop is located at or within the neighborhood.

The Athens Housing Authority neighborhoods are divided  into property management groups.  With property-based management, each neighborhood grouping has an assigned property manager, assistant property manager, and maintenance staff to oversee the day-to-day needs of the property. Admissions, Occupancy, Resident Support, Construction and Affordable Housing, Communications, Rent Collection, and Finance are handled through the central office administration. All departments, including property management offices, are housed at the Athens Housing Authority located at 300 S. Rocksprings Street, Athens, Georgia.
