The picture you see here is not uncommon. Many families live in homes that cause or contribute to illness. Moisture damage, microbial contamination, combustion gases, chemicals from cleaning products, and lead paint are among the many culprits.
The tribes, partners and staff of the Tribal Healthy Homes Network work to address those hazards, but the scale and cost of remediating homes is enormous. While that remains our long-term goal, we believe that small fixes can make a big difference, and that empowerment leads to prevention .
The toolkits include 11 different low cost instruments, and cue cards that promote preventative home maintenance. The Tribal Healthy Homes Network team can help your tribe place an order, develop an Outreach Plan, or set up training.
