8 Principles of a Healthy Home

At Rebuilding Together Baltimore, we believe safe homes and communities are a vital part of a thriving Baltimore. We follow the Eight Principles of Healthy Homes in our home repair work. In addition, we partner with community leaders and residents to identify and implement Community Impact Projects that benefit entire neighborhoods.

The home repairs we do are also structured based on Rebuilding Together's 25 Health and Safety Priorities, which you can read here.

 

To get a better idea of how these principles get executed in our day-to-day, hover over each one to see a list of repair examples that correlate with each principle.
