New Healthy Homes Publications
The National Healthy Homes Partnership has just announced the availability of two versions of a new guide for healthy homes, “Everyone Deserves a Safe and Healthy Home”.
The Consumer Guide is 12-page publication that addresses the basic principles of healthy homes with helpful action steps, checklists, graphics, and links for supplemental information. http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/documents/huddoc?id=consumers_edhh.pdf
The Stakeholder Guide is a 40-page publication designed for professionals that serve families through consultation or outreach. This guide can be used to educate, assess, advocate, train, and set standards and policy on healthy homes for their organizations. http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/documents/huddoc?id=stakeholder_edshh.pdf
Both of these resources can be used in conjunction with lesson plans available in the Healthy Homes toolkit. For additional information about the National Healthy Homes Partnership, check out the website at http://extensionhealthyhomes.org/index.html
