Not only is June National Safety Month, but it is also National Healthy Home Month! This observance is recognized nationally through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development or HUD and helps promote taking steps to make your home safe and efficient to preserve a healthy life. During National Healthy Homes Month, HUD aims to raise awareness of the importance of assessing your home and the impact of your health doing so, education everyone with local and free resources, and encouraging delivery of local activities and events in many of our communities.

Keeping a healthy home can be as simple as making sure the water you consume is safe in your house, having a house or apartment free of pests, and making sure there is a detector for Carbon Monoxide gas to prevent poisoning. If you need information on making your home safe, contact us at the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Union County office at (704) 283-3830 or check out the HUD website, for tips and tricks on how to make your home safe and welcoming! Happy Healthy Homes Month!
