FREE Workshop: Prevent Lead Poisoning in Your Home

Before 1978 nearly all paint used in homes in the US contained lead, and nearly 80% of homes in Multnomah County were built prior to 1978. Lean poisoning is a major environmental health threat to children – it impacts brain development, and can lead to learning disabilities, behavioral problems and a host of other long-term problems. Children are particularly susceptible to lead poisoning as their brains are still developing and they often ingest lead particles from chipping or peeling paint.

The prevalence of lead paint in home construction has lead local non profit, Community Energy Project, to offer FREE Lead Poisoning Prevention Workshops for the public. Participants learn how to determine when their home or apartment building was built, sources of lead in the home, prevention strategies, and how to protect your family from the dangerous affects of lead on the body.

There are two workshops coming up:

You can register for the next workshop online at or Contact Community Energy Project at or 503-284-6827.
