Seven out of ten homes in St. Joseph County were built before 1978 and may contain lead-based paint. Once lead-based paint starts to deteriorate, it can be a health hazard for children living in or visiting the home. Children exposed to lead hazards can suffer from behavioral problems, hearing loss, learning disabilities, and/or growth delays.
