Healthy Homes, Healthy Families Project seeks to increase community awareness of public health issues related to residential indoor air pollution. The goal is to share low- or no-cost methods for reducing indoor air pollution health risks in La Plata County. 4CORE is conducting 18 presentations across the county to provide information on topics such as asthma, radon, carbon monoxide poisoning, second-hand smoke and Sick Home Syndrome.
Participants receive free radon test kits, carbon monoxide alarms and information on low- or no-cost methods for the reduction of home-based health hazards. A long-term goal of the project is to improve the health of program participants through improved indoor air quality in their homes as a result of information gained from presentations.
Interested community organizations, low-income housing developments and health providers are encouraged to contact Sandhya Tillotson, Program Coordinator at 970-259-1916 x 115 to schedule a presentation.
