Housing

Championing children's health

We know that where we live often determines how healthy we are. Unfortunately, too many people live in homes and neighborhoods that inhibit health. In many low-income and minority communities, it is often difficult to find resources such as safe playgrounds, well-lit recreation spaces, or supermarkets with nutritious foods. As a result, it is no surprise that chronic diseases disproportionately affect these very same communities.

Targeting communities with high health risks, we use Active Design as a tool to promote health in affordable housing. By taking an evidence-based approach, we ensure that implementing Active Design results in housing with measurable health benefits among residents.
