Maria and Juan

At Home with Maria and Juan is a collection of four vignettes illustrating ways to keep your home lead safe.

Developed originally as part of a special outreach to South Jersey's Hispanic community, the information is pertinent for the entire region in which more than 50% of the housing stock was built before lead-based paint was banned.

Each video highlights a lead poisoning risk and provides recommendations to lower that risk. Videos can be viewed in English or Spanish.
