Lead Program


The goal of the Lead Prevention and Intervention Program is to prevent childhood lead poisoning, identify and treat exposed children, and reduce lead in the home.

The Lead Program:

  • Provides case management, including home visits from advocates and nurses
  • Educates community members and professionals.


Lead Testing is available at DHD every Thursday during normal business hours. 


If you think your child has been exposed to lead, please call (313) 876-0133
