Through the use of technical support, community action events and campaign sponsorships, Urban Health Alliance is dedicated to protecting the children and families in our communities from exposure to hazardous materials that exist within our environment. For many decades large corporations and our government have polluted our parks, schools and sports fields and left the public exposed to the hazards created by these companies and agencies. Consequently, children and families who have been exposed to these hazards are left to live with the effects created by exposure to these toxins. Urban Health Alliance has developed numerous programs, projects, and events to help achieve our goals. The philosophy of Urban Health Alliance is to empower the public through education advocacy in order to prevent and protect families at risk.
Urban Health Alliance programs utilize professionals trained in environmental health sciences and analytical testing fields to support our ongoing geochemistry and home evaluation studies. This hands-on approach is making a dedicated difference in keeping our children and homes safe. Some of our other programs are:
