Smoke-Free Housing Advocates and Smoke-Free Multi-Housing

Many people are interested in smoke-free housing. If you work for a public health organization, legal resource center, social service organization, or educational institution, here are some reasons why smoke-free housing policies benefit our communities.

If you want to learn how your organization can work with Live Smoke Free to promote smoke-free multi-housing, please contact us.

  •   Consultations
