Protecting the Potential of Children
Welcome to the new CLEARCorps website! We hope this is your first of many visits to our site. We are excited to be an organization committed to the national work of creating healthy homes for all children, families and communities. We designed this website for two purposes. The first is to serve as an up-to-date resource for accessing the latest information about lead poisoning, asthma triggers and other environmental hazards. The second is to invite you to join us in the work of creating healthy home living environments for all children so that they may grow and realize their fullest potential.
If, as you explore the site, you have suggestions for improvement, comments about the site, or requests for information you would like to see posted, please contact us at mail [at] clearcorps [dot] org.
“Lead Awareness for Parents” in American Sign Language
The Coalition to Prevent Lead Poisoning in Rochester, NY recently added an American Sign Language (ASL) version of their “Lead Awareness for Parents” DVD onto YouTube.
This 10-minute program provides an overview on lead hazards, highlights the importance of getting children tested, demonstrates how to clean hands and toys, identifies interim lead controls and lead-safe working practices, provides nutritional information to combat lead poisoning, and lists additional local and national resources.
Free copies of the program (in DVD or VHS formats) can be ordered from the Coalition to Prevent Lead Poisoning.
