Square One is proud to be joining Partners for Healthier Communities in the Springfield Healthy Homes Collaborative (SHHC) project. The initiative will improve the health of residents in Springfield by reducing exposure to environmental risks in the home environment.  Particularly, the SHHC project will work to reduce the high rates of asthma morbidity disproportionately experienced by communities of color and low-income residents in Springfield.  In addition, this project will reduce exposure to lead and other housing related issues by implementing a Healthy Homes approach that integrates harm reduction and home remediation strategies for various housing issues that affect health. Community residents will be actively involved throughout the initiative in leadership roles, project planning, and implementation to ensure that Springfield residents have a voice in addressing housing issues and have the capacity to continue this work to improve the indoor housing environment and other environmental issues as this work continues into the future.
