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.
