have access to housing, support services, and employment opportunities, but also must be building positive relationships with those who have had common experiences and can offer support.”

–Eleanor Roosevelt

When Opening Windows – Stop and Lock at 4 inches.

Window falls are predictable, therefore preventable. Click on the web link http://www.stopat4.com/ for information on what families can do to prevent child window falls, where families can find information on what kind of window stop, lock, or guard is needed for their particular windows, and where educators can learn about the issue and disseminate this injury prevention message.

We need your help to reduce the risk of injury to children – please learn about window falls and take action!

Reduce Fires on Your Property!

For Owners, Managers, & Maintenance Staff:
There are many things managers and property owners can do to mitigate and reduce the severity of fires on their property. Identifying access issues, building deficiencies, and unsafe tenant behavior can mean the difference between life and death when fire breaks out.

Use the TVF&R Self-Inspection Checklist and Tenant Space Checklist to help make your complex safer!

Landscaping without toxins

Playgrounds and gardens are very important to the residents of a multifamily housing community. Disengaging from landscaping practices that dump pesticides into the soil protects children, adults, and other living creatures that inhabit green spaces.

Interested in a more organic, healthy landscape? Click on the link below for some excellent resource information!
