How We Can Help

We are here to help you and your child. To participate, your child must have asthma, live in Boston and be between 2 and 18 years old, and must have had recent Emergency Department visits, hospitalizations or been referred to CAI by your primary care provider.

We will:

  • help you understand your child's asthma action plan
  • visit you at home to find asthma triggers, review your child's medication and provide you with vacuums, bedding encasements, etc., and integrated pest management
  • help you find the resources you need, including housing and insurance
  • connect you to asthma education opportunities and asthma-friendly activities for your child

It is important for you to know that your child with asthma can be active and healthy with proper medical care.
