Assist Communities

Once an asthma trigger is found, do you assist the communities to solve it?

Yes!  The trained CHWs go into the home during a home visit and use that opportunity to speak with the family about asthma management and as triggers are identified they work with the families so they understand what the trigger is and create a plan and use tools and resources available to address the triggers in their control and those not in their control.  What we are speaking about are trigger exposures in the home and sometimes that is not in the control of the tenant.  In that case we do our best to work with the tenant and city and community services and agencies to address the issues.
