Local project partners including Methodist Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis, and the Neighborhood Preservation, Inc. Medical-Legal Partnership have joined forces to have Memphis designated as a site with the Green and Healthy Homes Initiative. GHHI seeks to break the link between unhealthy housing and unhealthy families, and locally the project will be exploring the Pay For Success model to leverage private financing and public funds to improve housing conditions for better health outcomes, such as improved asthma rates and reduced emergency room visits.
