Share Your Unhealthy Housing Story

The National Center for Healthy Housing and the Children’s Environmental Health Network want to hear from you. Have you and your family or someone you know been affected by unhealthy housing conditions?

By sharing your story, you help spread awareness and education of children’s environmental health issues. You highlight the crucial link between environmental risk factors in the home and children’s health in the minds of others, and help to put a face to these concerns. While we are particularly interested in stories that affect children, we also value and recognize the importance of stories from all age groups that shed light on various environmental health challenges. Your contributions have the potential to ignite positive change and foster a healthier future for everyone.

Sharing your experiences to others nurtures empathy and understanding in those who may not know what it is like to carry the burden of a health or developmental condition. A video or voice testimonial is important because it allows people to see and hear REAL people being affected.

Send us your stories of how your children, you, your family, or people you know or work with have been affected by lead, asthma triggers, pests, mold, carbon monoxide, radon, and other causes of injury and illness in a short story, voice interview, video, or blog post format.
