Making Lancaster County a healthier place for ALL.
Lancaster County has one of the highest rates of elevated blood lead levels in Pennsylvania, making lead exposure and poisoning a significant health issue for children in our communities. That’s why Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health has launched Lead-Free Families—a first-of-its-kind, comprehensive program aimed at creating a strong pathway to eliminate childhood lead poisoning in Lancaster County.
It is estimated that some 91,000 homes in Lancaster County have lead hazards, often from lead-based paint. Lead-Free Families has set a goal of identifying and remediating lead hazards in at least 2,800 Lancaster County homes over the next 10 years, while also providing community education and temporary housing and support services for families during remediation.
With a $50 million initial investment by Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health, Lead-Free Families is the first such program in the United States to be 100-percent funded and led by a health system—part of our commitment to making our community a healthier place for all.
