Horizon House joins other agencies and organizations to create a safer and healthier environment and community. Our goal: to make our properties tobacco-free and smoke-free by June 30, 2018. To achieve success in changing the culture to better address tobacco use, we will provide the necessary resources and support for members of the Horizon House Community who are struggling with tobacco cessation. This agency-wide initiative is championed by our President and CEO, Jeff Wilush, with a Change Team comprised of executives, staff, and participants from every service area and region. The soft launch is scheduled for the Fall Festival, a themed occasion on September 21st, where participants and staff enjoy a carnival-like event. The major launch will coincide with the “Great American Smokeout” in November. Quitting is not a sprint but a marathon and we are up for the challenge!
