How Healthy Homes Create Healthy Lives

The truth is that where you live has a big impact on how long you live.

Not only that, there is an already large (and growing) amount of evidence about the huge influence your home and neighborhood have on all parts of your health.

The zip code you will in should not be an indicator of what your health will be.

But, sadly, it often is.

Habitat believes that creating healthy homes helps create healthy people. Those people create healthy neighborhoods and healthy communities.

Take a look at this story by Home Matters America.  It examines the link between health and homes.
