Flint brought national attention back to lead in water in homes and schools, but a critical gap isn't being addressed: childcare facilites. 4 million children in the United States under 5 spend most of their days in commercial or residential based childcare facilities. Kids under 5 are the most vulnerable population to lead exposure. They are the ones who absorb lead the easiest, and who lead harms the most.
Coalition of West Michigan
Our mission is to improve children's health and wellbeing by eliminating harmful housing conditions. We achieve that mission through policy and advocacy, outreach and education, direct services, and continuous collaboration.
Lead in Homes
Hundreds of Kent County children are needlessly poisoned by lead every year. To help children thrive and succeed in life, we need to ensure that the homes where they live are free from lead hazards. Lead poisoning is 100% preventable. The Healthy Homes Coalition helps make homes lead safe so children are protected.
