Adult Forum - Green and Healthy Homes Initiative - Lead Poisoning Prevention 101

The Green and Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) is dedicated to breaking the link between unhealthy housing and unhealthy children. Nearly six million households live with moderate to severe health hazards which place them at risk for illnesses and injuries, including: asthma, lead poisoning, and respiratory illness. GHHI replaces stand-alone housing intervention programs with an integrated, whole-house approach that produces sustainable green, healthy and safe homes. As a result, the organization is improving health, as well as economic and social outcomes for families across the country. A representative will lead us in a discussion of GHHI activities in the Baltimore area.
