Eliminating Lead Poisoning In San Diego

Graphic of Lead Safety and Healthy Homes Program logo

Childhood lead poisoning is the number one environmental health problem facing children today. Unlike many diseases, lead poisoning is entirely preventable. The Lead Safety and Healthy Homes Program serves as the primary liaison for connecting the community with resources to prevent lead poisoning. We are working with a collaboration of agencies dedicated towards eliminating childhood lead poisoning.
