Pennsylvania Department of Health, Lead and Healthy Homes Program (LHHP) LHHP seeks to create safe and healthy housing by addressing environmental health and safety issues in homes. When hazards are present in a home, they can have a profound effect upon the health of the occupants.                                 
There are Healthy Home Providers available across the commonwealth. School nurses can make referrals to these providers with parent/guardian permission. Contact the community health nurse in your county's state health center for provider contact information. Contact information for the community health nurse can be accessed here.
