Healthy Homes Program

La Casa de Don Pedro wants to ensure that all Newark residents live in healthy homes.  Our Healthy Homes Program addresses home hazards, provides community education and offers resources to support healthy homes for Newark families. Healthy Homes supports the well-being of families and that are free of health hazards, specifically asthma triggers and lead.

The goal of the Healthy Homes Program is to eliminate the threat of asthma and lead poisoning. Together with our partners who are part of Newark’s Believe in a Healthy Home program, we are targeting residents who live in Newark’s Fairmont and Clinton Hill neighborhoods and can provide them with services like:

  • Free Lead testing for the home to eliminate any existing or potential hazards and education to prevent Lead poisoning to the family
  • Asthma Management and/or prevention with case management and education on potential triggers
  • Referrals to medical providers
  • Assistance in obtaining medical insurance if needed
  • Free incentives and more
