Do you know a child with asthma? Enroll them in CHAMP at no cost. Program includes a Healthy Homes Assessment, education about asthma triggers, and how to reduce asthma triggers in the home. CHAMP is a federally funded program administered through Linn County Healthy Homes. CHAMP partners include the Linn County Asthma Reduction Coalition.
The healthy homes assessment will include a visual walk-through and assessment of building and mechanical components. It will include evaluation of indoor air quality through measurements of carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), temperature, and relative humidity. The Healthy Homes Inspection will include the principals of keeping your home Dry, Clean, Pest Free, Ventilated, Safe, Contaminate Free, and Maintained. An informal assessment of your child’s respiratory condition will be made, and Healthy Home and Asthma-specific education
will be shared with you and your child, if appropriate. Your child is not required to be present but if they are old enough to
understand their medical condition, it is encouraged.
