Helping People in Need-Smokers and Non-Smokers
About 1 in 6 black adults in the United States smokes cigarettes (17.5%). In the District, about 1 in 3 black adults is a smoker (26%). Cigarettes put smokers at risk for heart disease, cancer, and stroke, which are among the leading causes of death for blacks in the United States. People who breathe secondhand smoke are at risk for many of the same sicknesses and diseases, even though they do not smoke.

We provide the resources and tools you need to succeed.
