Rochester Healthy Homes Partnership

About the Rochester Healthy Homes Partnership

The Rochester Healthy Homes Partnership supports local efforts to reduce home environmental health hazards throughout our community, particularly for children and low-income residents of the City of Rochester.  In recent years, the RHHP has focused on promoting healthy homes outreach.  The RHHP has met approximately monthly since 2009 and maintains a listserv to share resources, coordinate activities, and collaborate on new projects.  

The partnership is facilitated by the University of Rochester Environmental Health Sciences Center Community Outreach and Engagement Core. For more information, contact Katrina Korfmacher. Visit for information on environmental health hazards that can be found in the home and learn how to reduce your family’s risk.
