Smoke-Free Collaborative Program
The Arizona Smoke-Free Living Coalition is a group of leading health organizations and community advocates who work hard to protect every Arizonan from the dangers of secondhand smoke.
Our coalition strives to educate and to create smoke-free living options for all Arizonans. We have the knowledge and resources needed to support property managers and residents to create smoke-free living environments for everyone, regardless of income. Breathing smoke-free air is critical to the health of all people.
Even though today there are more people in Arizona who do not smoke than those who smoke, secondhand smoke is still a very real danger. Our children and older adults are least able to protect themselves from the effects of secondhand smoke, yet they are the ones who are most likely to be exposed to it. That's why it's our mission to empower Arizona communities to live smoke-free.
Every day we strive to:
- Educate Arizonans about the health hazards of secondhand smoke exposure.
- Assist apartment residents who are experiencing secondhand smoke drifting into their units.
- Provide apartment property owners and property managers with materials, resources and information for implementing smoke-free policies, including examples of surveys, policy details, resident notification practices and lease addendums.
- Inform residents about smoke-free policies and how these policies may affect them.
