Too many of the homes in the Clinton Hill neighborhood still have lead-based paint and pipes, old single pain windows, and have not been properly maintained by landlords and may have leaks or pests. Advocating for healthy homes is our way of doing something about it!
Clinton Hill Community Action (CHCA) is excited to partner with Greater Newark Healthcare Coalition to engage new and expectant mothers and share resources on what they can do to make their homes heatlhy for their babies and themselves. Home health hazards, like lead, dust, and roach droppings can be harmful to young children, especially as they are learning to walk and crawling on the floor.
This workshop series will provide information on what you can do to create a healthy home, including a simple checklist that families can use to identify home health hazards.
Workshop participants who complete the home self assessment will be eligible to receive a $250 grant to purchase supplies and resources to address identified health hazards.
For more costly projects, like removing and replacing lead paint or lead pipes, CHCA is also partnering with La Casa de Don Pedro and Community Asset Preservation Corporation to make repairs for FREE.
