ABOUT US

Live Smoke Free is a non-profit program of the Association for Nonsmokers-Minnesota (ANSR) that promotes smoke-free policies in apartment buildings, condominiums, and other forms of housing. We educate building owners, managers, local policy makers, residents, and housing industry professionals about the benefits of smoke-free multi-housing.

How We’re Funded

Live Smoke Free relies on grant funding and charitable donations to provide property owners, managers, renters, and homeowners with smoke-free housing support. You can help us increase the number of smoke-free housing opportunities in Minnesota and beyond by donating to our parent organization, the Association for Nonsmokers – Minnesota.

DONATE NOW

Live Smoke Free assists owners and managers with creating, enforcing and promoting a smoke-free policy for their property. We also help renters find solutions to secondhand smoke problems and provide technical assistance to smoke-free housing programs. We offer free assistance throughout Minnesota and can provide some free resources and assistance to out-of-state entities, including public housing agencies.

Racial Equity Statement
Live Smoke Free acknowledges that racism is a public health crisis in Minnesota and the United States. Systemic racism has created disparate health outcomes for communities of color. Such systems create barriers to healthy, safe, affordable housing for these populations. This makes people of color more likely to live in multi-unit rental housing and more likely to be exposed to harmful secondhand smoke. At Live Smoke Free we believe that everyone deserves a smoke-free home and we are committed to continue to work diligently toward that goal.
