Healthy Homes

This partnership, spearheaded by the District Department of the Environment (DDOE), is a broad coalition of District agencies and the District's most prominent medical providers, non-profits, and environmental health professionals. Participating health providers and social service agencies serve as front-line responders, identifying children in distress due to severe and uncontrolled asthma, lead poisoning, and/or situations in which a pregnant woman lives in a hazardous home.

First-line responders refer families or individuals to the DDOE's Lead and Healthy Housing Division so hazards may be identified and corrected. For more information, please refer to the resources below.
