Many families in federal housing are living in dangerous conditions.  

Our mission at Safe Kids is to protect kids from preventable injury, many involving risks in the home. Parents should have the power to prevent such child injuries. Recent developments led us to take action to make sure parents have the power to protect their families when their house or apartment is under the control of the federal government.
