For years, tobacco has taken a toll on our friends, families, loved ones and communities. More than 400,000 Americans die from tobacco use each year. Another 53,000 deaths can be attributed to secondhand smoke. We strive to prevent underage youth access, encourage youth to be tobacco-free, assist those who are interested in quitting and protect all from the harmful effects of secondhand smoke. This site has links to many free resources. Anyone who is interested in participating in our programs may contact us for more information.
