Mold & Moisture

Mold can cause health problems and trigger allergies and asthma attacks. With adequate moisture​, mold can grow anywhere in the home. It can also be controlled, making the air easier for all to breathe.  The Healthy Homes Coalition helps families understand mold problems and access the resources needed to make repairs.

The Need for Universal Lead Testing

At Healthy Homes Coalition, we advocate for universal testing, lead paint removal & correction, and continuing knowledge of the issue. You should ask for your child to be tested for lead every year, up to age 3, and yearly up to age 5 if lead hazards are present in home. Once you have evidence of lead in the home, take action. If you live in Kent County, you can call Healthy Homes Coalition of West Michigan for a home environmental hazards screening, which can identify causes of lead poisoning and remove the hazards through case management. 


Healthy Homes Coalition is looking for dedicated and compassionate individuals to help serve our community!
