Coalition of West Michigan
Our mission is to prioritize children's health and wellbeing by eliminating harmful housing conditions, beginning in Grand Rapids’ hardest hit neighborhoods. We achieve that mission through direct services, community organizing, 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.

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!
