November 2013 Asthma Friendly Home Partnership Program Needs Participants
    The Center for Environmental Health at Children’s Mercy has a great new opportunity for children with asthma. The Asthma-Friendly Home Program provides home assessments and education to help families improve their home in ways that can make asthma easier to manage.

    To participate, families must:
    • Live in the Kansas City Metro area.
    • Have a child with asthma that is between 2 and 17 years of age.
    • The child must stay at the participating home at least 4 nights per week.
    • Families must either own their home, or have lived in the same rental unit the last 6 months.
    • Families will need to meet certain income guidelines.

    Asthma-friendly home assessments may include:
    • Checking general air quality and ventilation
    • Home moisture survey
    • Household product survey
    • Home maintenance survey
    • Home safety check-up

    All qualifying families will receive an asthma-friendly healthy home kit!
