Housing and Institution Safety


The quality of our housing is a significant determinant of health and directly or indirectly affects the physical, social and mental well-being of each resident. The housing and institution safety program helps to assure that rental housing is maintained in a healthful and sanitary manner and that detention facilities, day camps and organized camps are maintained and operated in a safe and sanitary manner. This is accomplished by responding to complaints related to sewage spills or vermin in housing units and by conducting annual inspections of detention facilities, day use camps, and organized camps.
