led by the co-winners of the Best Practices Award for Community Partnerships. Lynette Farhart, Executive Director of Project Houseworks in Nebraska, will share about "Warm the Metro," an annual event in collaboration with a Heating and Cooling Contractors Association that provides free furnace maintenance checks. She will also talk about their partnership with a local electricians' union annually for "Powering Hope" in which volunteers provide free electrical repairs. Shawnette Milton, Program Coordinator at Rebuilding Together of the Triangle (RTT) in North Carolina will share about their partnership with the local health department to provide solutions for homes occupied by lead-poisoned children. Environmental health nurses help find the family a place to stay while RTT makes repairs using lead safe work practices. Once a 3rd party verifies that the lead hazards are stable and contained or removed, the family moves back in.
