The mission of the Healthy Homes Coalition is to prioritize children’s health and wellbeing by eliminating harmful housing conditions, beginning in Grand Rapids’ hardest hit neighborhoods.
All children will grow up in healthy homes free of environmental hazards, accomplished through policy and advocacy, outreach and education, direct services, and continuous collaboration.
