Contributing to Community

When Hugo, Jenn, and Lisa go to homes to help stop kids from hurting, their first order of business is to identify the things that are making the greatest contribution to harming children. Once they assess the environment, they know how much various factors are contributing to the problem.

At Healthy Homes, we talk about contributions all the time.

Accidental Injury Overview

By definition, an accidental injury is an injury that could have been prevented. While 100% of all home injuries cannot be prevented, many can.

Together, burns and scalds, falls, and poisonings are responsible for 86% of home injury deaths. The Healthy Homes Coalition helps families to be safe in their homes.
