Established in 2012, Healthy Smart Homes, Inc., is a result of environmental toxins research conducted by Tracy L. Brown while obtaining her Master of Public Policy degree in Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning from Tufts University.
We believe, when low doses of environmental toxins are detected, parents should be notified and the toxins should be removed (nutrition and/ or medical treatment) from children as soon as they are diagnosed to prevent the beginning of neurological, cognitive and a decrease in I.Q. of children. Failure to remove early toxins can cause ADD, ADHD, some forms of Austism and prevent children from excelling in school and reaching their potential.
Moreover, we believe, public policy should provide resources to fund case managers to: 1) serve children with low doses of toxins in a child system, 2)identify sources, 3) pathways, and 4) resources to remove, retrofit, and renovate low to moderate income homes so families can live in healthy homes, children can succeed, and health care costs are reduced.
Finally, we seek to improve the economic well-being, improve standard of living and create wealth of low-to-moderate income home owners by advocating and educating potential and current homeowners on how to: 1) modify the terms and conditions of their current terms, using energy efficient loans and removing toxins from homes, that can result in the increase value and equity of the home, and 2) reduce the cycle of poverty by educating first-time home buyers on obtaining energy efficient loans with when purchasing their new home. See our Environmental Loan Mortgage section that outlines the benefits.
In May 2014, we received our 501c3 tax deductible status and and Tracy L. Brown as President & CEO is assisting in the growth of the organization, and take it to the next level, as she has done in other organizations. Ms. Brown will be setting up our new office and hiring staff to achieve our vision, mission and goals. We will be launching our new programs in phases from mid-August through August 2015. We are proud to have her join our team. Tracy comes with over 25 years of experience as a state and federal investigator, former Executive Director of a non-profit and has earned a Master of Public Policy from Tufts University, in Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning, an Executive Masters in Leadership and Management from Seattle University, and her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Washington.
