Lead Safe Remediation

SJCS has been selected by the NJ Department of Community Affairs as one of nine community based agencies in the State to participate in the Lead-Safe Home Remediation (LSHR) Program. The purpose of the program is to identify and remediate lead-based paint hazards via interim controls to prevent elevated blood lead levels in children and pregnant women. Testing is free and available to all residents of the Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties.

Typical repairs in this program include new doors and windows, fresh coats of paint on friction surfaces and new handrails.

SJCS can also assist families with lead paint abatement measures in certain areas.
