Lead Safe is becoming a resource center for scientific research on the effects of childhood lead poisoning. New Orleans ranks at the top of the most lead poisoned cities in the US. Lead Safe’s mission is to make New Orleans a lead-safer city, by working with businesses, foundations, religious organizations, individuals and government to raise awareness of problems of lead exposure in children and specifically to remediate the lead hazards in daycare centers and playgrounds in our most at-risk neighborhoods.
