Washington, DC - HomeFree Workshop

Nov 15 2016 | 12:00am ET

HomeFree is a Healthy Building Network initiative supporting affordable housing leaders who are advancing human health through the use of healthier building materials, while enhancing building performance.

Today, low-wealth communities are disproportionately exposed to chemical hazards found in many building products and subsequently have more severe health related issues. We can change that.

The affordable housing sector can lead this effort by becoming informed and sharing best practices. Our collective influence and buying power can engage building product manufacturers to disclose product data and create new markets for healthy affordable materials.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. – Margaret Mead
