Residents Invited to Learn How to Make Their Homes Healthy and Energy Efficient

Neighborhood College LogoSept. 20, 2013

Did you know that your home plays a significant role in your health?  Home accidents kill one person every 16 minutes and injure one person every four seconds in the United States.  Dust and contaminates, property maintenance, water issues, pests and more can affect the well-being of you and your family.

As part of Neighborhood College, the city’s Neighborhood Services Department is hosting a “Is Your House Healthy and Energy Efficient?” workshop from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, at the Broadway Heritage Neighborhood Resource Center, 2405 E. Broadway Road.  Participants will learn simple ways to help make their home healthier and more energy efficient, including the Seven Principles of a Healthy Home, sustainability practices and weatherization.  Energy efficient giveaways, such as CFL light bulbs, will be available.

Neighborhood College is a series of workshops presented by multiple city departments that provides participants with information about city programs, services and resources; the tools to access those resources; and the skills and ideas with which to build positive, sustainable communities.

To register for this class and see additional workshops offered through Neighborhood College, visit or call 602-534-4444.
