Healthy Housing Toolkit

Advocating for Healthy Housing

This toolkit is for individuals and families who want healthier, more stable rental housing. The toolkit is also for other community members who want to improve the lives of the children in their neighborhoods, towns, and counties across Georgia.

The toolkit contains information and guidance about:

  • Why stable, healthy housing is necessary for children and youth;
  • How to work with neighbors, schools, local governments, churches, and others to make rental housing more stable and healthy for families and children;
  • How to advocate for changes to law and policy to improve housing conditions; and
  • Tenants’ rights to healthy housing, how to require a landlord to make repairs, and how to respond to an eviction.
