Just over two years since it began its "Smoke Free" initiative, Homeport has surpassed 1,200 multi-family apartments and single family homes where smoking is prohibited. The no-smoking provisions, meant to protect residents from smoking, second hand smoke and potential fires, applies not only to the homes but the property grounds.

Fourteen communities for seniors and younger families have to abide by the rules and more will be coming on line. In recognition of Homeport's efforts, the Ohio Department of Health has awarded Homeport with a "platinum" level award that included a billboard on East Broad Street (above).
