Breathe Easy at Home

We're improving access and communication between medical homes for children with asthma, public health agencies, and housing agencies in Boston.

Breathe Easy at Home was developed to ensure that inspections — and follow-up inspections — are performed quickly to resolve substandard conditions.

Through this shared website, doctors, nurses, or other health professionals can refer patients with asthma for housing inspections if they suspect substandard housing conditions may be triggering a child's asthma in their home. The presence of cockroaches, mice or mold or moisture problems can cause serious issues for some children with asthma.

NOTE: Breathe Easy is not a relocation program. We try to ensure the best possible living conditions, so that tenants can remain where they are!
