Alliance for Healthy Homes
The Alliance for Healthy Homes was founded in 1990 as the Alliance To End Childhood Lead Poisoning. Our name change in July of 2003 reflects the expansion of our work on lead poisoning prevention to address other housing-related health hazards.

Community Environmental Health Resource Center
The Community Environmental Health Resource Center (CEHRC) is a project of the Alliance in collaboration with community leaders from across the country. CEHRC helps community organizations identify health hazards in homes and document substandard conditions to achieve changes in policies and practice in high-risk communities.
