Making Homes Safe For Kids

When you’ve put child locks on all the cabinets and plugged all the electrical outlets, what’s left to child-proof your home? 

In the second part of Wednesday's Up to Date, we’ll talk with Brett Horn, one of the founders of Charlie’s House about his family's story of tremendous loss and how they've turned grief into a quest for increased safety in homes with young children

After losing their son, Charlie, in 2007 to an in-home accident, Brett Horn and his wife Jenny have helped lead a local push focused on in-home safety measures for children. Charlie’s House is dedicated to reducing the number of injuries to children, in and around the home.
