Healthy Homes for Educational Success Updates


The Healthy Homes Coalition is at it again - convening dozens of partners to change the way we do business in Grand Rapids. This summer, the Healthy Homes Coalition of West Michigan and partners are developing a program called Healthy Homes for Educational Success. This collaborative program aims to improve children's housing, resulting in improved child and family wellbeing, and thereby improving children's success in school.

Initial meetings with all five program work groups have been held and the next steps for program development are better defined. The Healthy Homes Coalition and partners at Wayne State University are continuing work to create an efficient home environment screening tool.

Work groups are continuing to meet throughout the summer - stay tuned for more updates!
