  • STACY: Our partnership with the Chicago Housing Authority included both technical assistance and programming to educate residents and help them quit smoking. We worked with property managers on policy language, provided smoke-free signage and assisted with issues such as enforcement. CTPP was also able to provide programming and education to CHA residents. We employed peer health educators, Victoria Parker and Jaz Vance, to provide workshops and cessation classes at CHA sites throughout the city. At some locations, health educators even went door-to-door to get out the message. I’m also happy to report that our work with CHA will not end with the project, as we were able to train service providers in the CHA network in tobacco prevention. They now have resources and intervention techniques to better serve the health needs of their clients.
