We at Habitat for Humanity know that poor housing conditions increase the risk of health problems for families. As our CEO Jonathan Reckford said, “ We’ve seen over and over the inextricable links between housing, health, education and livelihoods.” In this January 2018 speech at the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, he speaks about the link of housing and health, and particularly how decent housing “eliminates the health threats to children and parents alike.”
