About the Coalition

The Chester County Tobacco-Free Coalition (CCTFC) is a collaborative community effort dedicated to preventing the initiation of tobacco use among youth, promoting free cessation options to both youth and adults, advocating for smoke-free environments and reducing the rate of tobacco sales to youth under the age of 18 in Chester County. The coalition was started in May 1999 by the Chester County Health Department; members include hospitals, clinics, schools and universities, local health agencies, community organizations, government agencies and legislative representatives.

Meeting Schedule

CCTFC members meet 6 times per year to plan, implement and evaluate our annual Great American Smokeout and Kick Butts Day initiatives.  Meetings are held on Monday mornings in the Government Services Center: 601 Westtown Road, West Chester, PA 19380.  The remainder of the 2017 meeting schedule is below.

  • Monday, November 13th @ 9:30-11:00am

Smoking Cessation Programs

The coalition is dedicated to providing free individual and/or group cessation to those that are ready to live nicotine-free.  Please view the options below for a cessation program near you.  Cessation is most successful for those utilizing combination therapies.  For example, using Nicotine Replacement Therapy, or NRT (the patch, Chantix, etc.) and registering for a cessation class at one of Chester County’s free locations would be a combination of therapies that yield success.
