1. The National Survey on Tobacco Prevention at Homeless Service Providers

The National Coalition for the Homeless supports the work of the National Network on Tobacco Prevention and Poverty (NNTPP), a program of the Health Education Council, which focuses on preventing and reducing tobacco use in low-income communities.

Please take a moment to complete the following survey if you work in an organization such as a shelter or soup kitchen that offers assistance to those experiencing homelessness. Your answers will help guide the National Network on Tobacco Prevention and Poverty, and the National Coalition for the Homeless on their next activity phase.

This survey is being administered jointly by the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM), the National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH), and the National Network on Tobacco Prevention and Poverty (NNTPP).
