I have been informed that the Patricia Handy Women’s Shelter located in Washington, DC. The shelter which used to be a men’s shelter for years prior; houses approximately 60 or so homeless women. It has been brought to my attention that this very old building has a severe case of black mold throughout. I would like action to taken to have the shelter tested for black mold or other types of mold which could be harmful to the women residing in this shelter. I don’t know as of yet how to initiate this action but I am reporting this concern to the Washington, DC Department of Health and to Mayor Muriel Bowser’s office in the very near future.
Please advise me how to go forward with the testing for black mold in the women’s shelter and how to begin to get this health hazard resolved. [email protected]
