The Licking County Healthy Homes Coalition was formed in 2010, and is dedicated to insuring the residents of Licking County are provided with the necessary information and resources in order for them to live in a safe and healthy home. The group has developed an educational pamphlet that will be distributed by member agencies, and is continuing to research potential sources of funding to assist residents with remediation efforts. If you would like to join the coalition please contact Chad Brown, chairperson, at 740-349-6535 or cbrown@lickingcohealth.org

Housing conditions can significantly impact a person's health. From lead paint exposure for children, to trip and fall hazards for seniors, to asthma triggers for asthmatics, to the negative health effects caused by mold. All of these issues can cause serious illnesses and reduce your overall quality of life.  More information on Healthy Homes>>
