Support for Families in Trying Times

The staff and board of the Healthy Homes Coalition have been amazed at the way in which this community has stepped up, during hard times, to support our work. Together we are busy ensuring children have safe, healthy homes where they can shelter during the pandemic.


Working Remotely to Help Families Have Safer Homes

While Healthy Homes' staff left the office and began working remotely back in March of this year, our commitment to help parents provide healthier homes for their children continues. This unique partnership is easy for Healthy Homes, because keeping parents in the driver's seat has always been one of our core values. Our strategic plan says "we will use a family-centered approach to promote housing environments where children thrive and achieve their highest potential."
