Welcome to McDonough Housing Authority

The McDonough Housing Authority (MHA) is a federally funded agency, operating independently of City government. We help provide low and moderate-income public housing for the City of McDonough, and, through partner programs, offer our residents opportunities to improve their lives. Let us know if we can help – explore the site for additional information, or contact us directly at 770-957-4494.

The McDonough Housing Authority owns and operates 118 units of conventional public housing located at three sites: Lamar Point, located off Lewis Street, Hooten Street Apartments, and Weaver-Thurman Crossing, located off Church Circle.  Our apartments are all brick construction, with central heat and air conditioning. The interior of the units are fitted with Energy Star-rated appliances. Washer and dryer connections come standard at John Smith and Eastside Homes, while only the two and three bedroom units have washer hookups at John Smith. All of our housing developments are in close proximity to employment centers, religious and educational institutions, and recreational and cultural amenities.
