Comfortable, healthy and safe living coexistence depends on how we use and distribute the space in our homes. When we use space wisely, we prevent overcrowding, which can lead to interpersonal conflicts, promiscuity, violence, the spread of illness and other health effects.
Food preparation, personal hygiene and proper rest require clean, tidy and healthy areas.
These areas don’t have to be entirely separate rooms – in fact, it helps if the furniture in our home can be adapted easily to fit the available space and the day-to-day needs of our families.
Habitat for Humanity can help you figure out your space needs for healthy living! We can teach you and your neighbours how to make good use of small space, through our community workshops.

We are teaching you how to make your home, water, environment safe, and how to support and accommodate your community when preparing for emergencies, and this information can be critical to your health ahead of the 2020 hurricane season. If your community or organization would like to host a special discussion with parents and teachers, please call 675-1222 or 398-7381 to learn more.
