For East Harlem families (zip codes 10029, 10035).
 

COVID-19 update: LSA is doing virtual home asthma visits to all eligible families. The CHW will call the family to set up a session using a video conference platform of their choice. During the first session, the CHW will provide asthma education and also virtually assess the apartment for environmental triggers.
 
If any environmental triggers are present the CHW will coach the family on how to reduce them.
The CHW can reach out to the landlords on behalf of the family if there is a condition like mold or severe water damage in the home.
 
LSA is still providing mattress covers and other material to families; families just have to come to the LSA building to pick them up.

 
The free environmental health program by the LSA Family Health Services helps identify and reduce the asthma triggers in your home with a free home visit. When you agree to an appointment with a home visit, LSA will provide advocacy, education and a plan to control pests in your home (cockroaches, mice, mold, bed bugs, and others) in affiliation with other organizations for an integrated pest management (IPM) strategy. At LSA, community health workers are bilingual and can speak English and Spanish. To sign up for services contact the Asthma Program at (646) 672-5254. Remember that the Asthma Home Visit appointments are available from Monday to Friday.

COVID-19 Update: Stay Healthy While Staying Home. New Yorkers are spending more time at home during the COVID-19 outbreak. If you have asthma, be aware of asthma triggers (PDF) in your home and how to avoid them.
The Healthy Neighborhoods Program is not inspecting homes at this time, but it is accepting referrals from health care providers through the Citywide Immunization Registry and by fax (PDF). We will schedule appointments when inspections resume. More info here.

 
The NYC Healthy Neighborhoods Program (HNP) can help children and adults with asthma by identifying asthma triggers in their home and finding ways to avoid them. HNP provides free home assessments to children and adults diagnosed with persistent asthma by a health care provider. If the HNP staff find environmental asthma triggers or other home health hazards, the program will work with building owners to correct the problems.
 
To get a home assessment a health care provider should have referred you to HNP.
 
You can print out this Asthma Referral Form (PDF) and give it to your health care provider during your next visit. More information here.

 

El Programa de Vecinos Saludables (HNP por sus siglas en inglés) ayuda a niños y adultos con asma identificando desecandenantes en el hogar y la manera de evitarlos. El programa ofrece evaluaciones gratis a personas diagnosticadas con asma persistente por el doctor.
 
Para obtener una evaluación del hogar, el doctor debe haberlo remitido al programa HNP.
