Mothers Eliminating Secondhand Smoke

An exciting initiative to address secondhand smoke, M.E.S.S. is designed to ensure the overall well-being of women and children through creating voluntary smoke-free homes, smoke-free vehicles, and policy adoption within the faith community.


M.E.S.S. is a collaborative effort between Hold Out the Lifeline: A Mission to Families and the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control. Its overall purpose is to build an advocacy network among faith-based organizations and other appropriate settings.
