SIXTEENTH STREET COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTER - CHILDHOOD LEAD
The purpose of Sixteenth Street�s (SSCHC) project is to identify and educate medically underserved families, largely consisting of low-income Hispanic immigrants, and provide blood lead screening and lead education by (1) partnering with local and community Wisconsin Works agencies and their job-seeking client population and with the Milwaukee Public Schools� Head Start program to provide training for their employees so that they are comfortable in discussing childhood lead poisoning with the clients they serve; (2) incorporating lead education materials that market the support services provided by SSCHC�s Lead Outreach Program into these agencies� and programs� own outreach materials, (3) working with the University of Wisconsin�s School of Architecture & Urban Planning to use mapping technology to develop time and staff efficient canvassing routes throughout Milwaukee�s residential neighborhoods; (4) utilizing developed canvassing routes to conduct door to door outreach that will identify new families for admittance into SSCHC�s Lead Outreach Program and access to its support services; and (5) conduct analysis of SSCHC�s Lead Outreach Program data to identify high risk housing units that have been tied to multiple cases of childhood lead poisoning enabling SSCHC to provide education and referral services to families before a lead poisoning occurs.
