Trial Objective:

Do you live in Northeast Denver and have a child under the age of 12 with asthma? The Healthy Homes – Healthy Kids Project is funded by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. Its purpose is to help families who have a child with asthma to find out whether environmental factors in their home might be making their child’s asthma worse, and if so, to help them fix these problems. The project is conducted in either English or Spanish based on the family’s preference.

Participation in this project involves:

  • 2 visits to your home by project staff to assess your home for asthma triggers.
  • A detailed report about any problems we find and what you can do to improve these.
  • A free vacuum cleaner and other household cleaning and safety supplies.
  • The possibility of free professional assistance in repairing problems.
  • Monthly telephone support for your home improvement efforts.

You can join this project if you:

  • Have a child under the age of 12 with asthma or recurrent wheezing.
  • Live in one of the following Northeast Denver neighborhoods: Globeville, Elyria Swansea, Five Points, North Capitol Hill, Whittier, Skyland, Northeast Park Hill, City Park West or Clayton.
