Make Your Home Lead Safe

Housing that has lead paint poses a serious health threat, especially to children ages six and under. Some of the threats of lead exposure can include: damage to the brain and nervous system, slower growth and development, learning and behavior problems, and hearing and speech problems.

  • Are you concerned for your child’s health and safety?
