Through LEAP, OHKA has developed a comprehensive plan to educate the entire community about lead and resources in our city to reduce and eliminate lead exposure. 

An estimated 84,000 homes in Omaha were built before 1978. Lead paint was not banned in the U.S. for residential use until 1978, so homes built before then are likely to contain lead. Omaha has a number of programs to assist you in screening your own home for lead. Contact nicole@omahahealthykids.org for more information on current programs. 

Visit omahalead.org to learn about the Omaha Lead Site and the history of lead in those homes. 

Thanks for reading.

Seeing our promotores go through the GLEE program and then thrive has been so rewarding. We make an impact on children's health—but we have also helped many people reach a level of confidence that will impact their entire lives. We have really changed people's lives in many more ways than we predicted.
