Housing

Living in a smokefree home is good for you and your family, protecting you from the dangerous toxins in secondhand smoke and greatly reducing the risk of fires and damage to your home.

Smokefree housing is a growing trend across the state, with many homeowners and landlords, private and public, adopting no-smoking policies for their homes and buildings. Among many others, Guardian Management LLC took all 12,000 of its rental units smokefree in 2008 and received very positive feedback from staff and residents. As of February 2011, 16 of the 22 housing authorities in Oregon have a no-smoking policy for some or all of their properties.
