Promoting a tobacco-free generation through community prevention and cessation resources

CASY’s Tobacco-Free Vigo (TFV) seeks to promote a tobacco-free generation through prevention education, supporting tobacco-free environments, and assisting tobacco users who want to quit. Tobacco-Free Vigo, formally known as Tobacco Prevention and Cessation, is a diverse coalition representing health care, education, business, housing, and other sectors in the community assists in these efforts. Through direct programming and public awareness campaigns, CASY works with its many community partners to foster safer, healthier environments for youth in the Wabash Valley. In 2020, Tobacco-Free Vigo unveiled not only a new name but also a new logo in an effort to better align themselves with the mission.

What We Do

Prevention Education – CASY TFV partners with local K-12 and post-secondary educators to empower youth and young adults to live tobacco-tree lives.

Tobacco Quitline Promotion – CASY TFV helps health care providers, businesses, and organizations in the community make the best use of this free, evidence-based resource for helping people transition to tobacco-free living.

Outreach – CASY TFV works to include disparately affected populations such as veterans, minorities, those with disabilities, and the LGBTQ community.

Environmental Change – CASY TFV promotes the universal benefits of tobacco-free environments in many arenas including the workplace, public spaces, and multi-unit housing.

2024 SmokeFree AND VapeFree!

Effective January 1, 2024, Terre Haute and Vigo County have amended ordinances which add electronic devices to the ban. Anywhere that tobacco products are not allowed, vapes and e-cigarettes are not as well. This is a further move led by Tobacco Free Vigo to improve the health of Vigo county residents and make our community a healthier and totally smoke free place to live and work.
