Did you know that excessive mold, pest infestation, and other housing conditions can pose hazards to children with chronic health conditions like asthma and allergies? These conditions result in repeated emergency room visits for hundreds of low-income children in DC when their landlord’s refusal to address housing code violations exacerbates these health issues. Many housing conditions cases come to Children’s Law Center through our Medical-Legal Partnership.
