WHAT WE DO
We provide education, supplies, and construction upgrades to reduce environmental hazards in the home and improve the health of children and families.
Disrupt the cycle of poverty by ensuring a family’s housing conditions do not prevent them from going to school, going to work, or engaging with their community.
Reduce the economic and physical impact stemming from poor housing conditions for both families and healthcare systems.
The updated 3.5 μg/dL blood lead reference value allows more children to receive immediate interventions.
Healthy Housing Omaha’s programs are designed to address health and safety concerns frequently seen in substandard housing. HHO works to reduce the economic and mental burden of illness caused by unhealthy housing conditions.
HHO’s programs are evidence-based and holistically designed. Program coordinators work to understand the whole picture of
a family and their home to best curate services that will be most impactful to them.
Between 2019 – 2020
5.6% of children in Nebraska had asthma.
