About Rebuidling Together from Our President
Why is RTWR needed?
Rebuilding Together Warner Robins is responding to a crisis in our community – an aging affordable housing stock and the growing number of people who, because of age, disability or lack of resources, live in dilapidated or inaccessible housing. The correlation between household income and housing needs is undeniable, especially for lower-income homeowners. Our work has an impact on the individual homeowners and Warner Robins as a whole. Everyone deserves to live in a home that provides warmth, safety and dignity. We can accomplish this by revitalizing the existing housing stock of our communities, thus bringing forth positive and healthy changes in Warner Robins.

Over 1025 homes improved. More than $4 million value of improvements
