Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program
The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program provides home-visiting and case-management services to families whose children have high levels of lead poisoning and live in Berkshire, Franklin, or Hampshire County. Our current services are delivered virtually during the pandemic.
The program aims to lower elevated lead levels in children under the age of six by offering support to families as they go through the process of mandated retests, and it strives to make environments safe for the young children who live in them.
In additional to families, the Community Health Worker works with health care professionals, homeowners, landlords, realtors, and other community stakeholders.
