      Safe Homes = Healthy Kids       Hogares Seguros = Niños Sanos
    Pima County's newly re-branded Home Repair Program for Children and Their Families provides limited-time, grant-funded home repairs addressing lead-based paint, and other home-related hazards, to make your home safer for your kids and family.

    Lead is a highly toxic metal that may cause a range of health problems, especially in young children. When lead is absorbed into the body, it can cause damage to the brain and other vital organs, like the kidneys, nerves and blood.

    Lead may also cause behavioral problems, learning disabilities, seizures and in extreme cases, death. Some symptoms of lead poisoning may include headaches, stomach aches, nausea, tiredness and irritability. Children who are lead poisoned may show no symptoms.

    According to the Environmental Protection Agency, if your home was built before 1978, there is a good chance it has lead-based paint.

    This program is NOT for emergency home repairs.

    We can fix it!
