Repairing a Home, Improving a Child's Health: CAPP+

The Community Asthma Prevention Program Plus (CAPP+) Home Repairs Program is an extension of CHOP's Community Asthma Prevention Program, which sends specially trained community health workers to the homes of children with tough-to-control asthma. If they see that home repairs would reduce asthma triggers — irritants that can cause an asthma attack — the family may qualify for CAPP+. Learn more about this partnership with the city of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Housing Development Corp. (PHDC).
