Review for Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance, Omaha, NE, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance came out of an intense collaboration among many organizations active in childhood lead poisoning prevention. Since 2005, OHKA with its community partners has completed a community strategic planning process; established a community lead information hotline; created and implemented a social marketing campaign that included a television commercial conveying positive messages in both English and Spanish; sponsored a nationally recognized speaker to train Omaha medical providers; provided information about lead paint safety to painters and contractors and more; and organized the first healthy homes conference in Omaha. OHKA has secured new resources from EPA , US Conference of Mayors, AmeriCorps, ClearCorps, HUD and local donations and discounts for services and materials to create the Get the Lead Out program to assist property owners to make homes lead-safe.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

expanding resources for childhood lead poisoning prevention and healthy homes education.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

say keep on growing and keep up the great work!

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I collaborated with OHKA on several projects including contractor training and the healthy homes conference. .
