CLEARCorps Detroit

Diane McCloskey, Executive Director

 

Community Lead Education and Reduction Corps (CLEARCorps) is dedicated to lead poisoning prevention in Detroit through its programs, education and outreach, and policy work.

CLEARCorps has four main programs. Healthy Homes Detroit addresses asthma, lead, and home safety issues through products, education, and repairs. The Lead Safe Homes Program abates lead hazards from homes in Detroit. Lead Talk educates on lead poisoning prevention, and targets families whose children have low to mid lead levels. The Education and Outreach program works with health fairs, Head Starts, and schools to bring information and resources about lead poisoning to both parents and children. CLEARCorps unites government, industry and community-based organizations to advocate for long-term policy solutions to healthy housing.
