NEW “HEALTHY HOMES / HEALTHY FAMILIES” RESOURCE GUIDES

The Coalition to Prevent Lead Poisoning (CPLP) and the Rochester Healthy Homes Partnership are pleased to announce the publication of the newly revised “Healthy Homes, Healthy Families: A Guide to Protecting your Family’s Health By Making Your Home A Safer Environment.” The full-color 32-page booklet includes practical tips for reducing environmental hazards in your home and regional information from organizations that offer resources to improve home health.

 HealthyHomes_Guide_Jan2014_ENG_Final.pdf    HealthyHomes_Guide_Jan2014_SPA_Final.pdf

Available in English and Spanish, the “Healthy Homes, Healthy Families” guide covers ways to reduce asthma triggers, improve indoor air quality, reduce lead paint poisoning hazards, as well as reducing general home hazards including safe water temperatures, safe sleeping practices for babies, household chemicals, pesticides and poisons. The guide also provides information about summer meal programs and regional farmers markets, legal and financial information, and national and state healthy housing resources. 

 

Printing and publication was made possible through funding from the City of Rochester’s U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control grant, and the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets. Roberts Communication provided in-kind design work.

 

To request free copies of the “Healthy Homes, Healthy Families” resource guide, please call (585) 224-3125. Downloadable PDFs are also available on the Coalition to Prevent Lead Poisoning’s web site at www.letsmakeleadhistory.org.
