Recovery requires a change in lifestyle; the rate of change for each individual and community varies. Community involvement may include family, peers, neighbors, or any other group.


We pursue opportunities that develop helpful and healthy relationships with communities and individuals. Relationships of support, assistance, and encouragement within the community create partnerships that benefit each person and the community as a whole.

Tobacco-Free Maywood/Montebello Contest


We share information between individuals and communities. We challenge systemic conditions and social disparities which threaten a healthy environment. We encourage and facilitate the on-going collective effort of a dynamic staff, willing participants, and the community.


Youth Photo Art Contest

During the month of May, the Tobacco-Free Partnership Maywood/Montebello hosted a Youth Art Contest designed to allow them to demonstrate the dangers of smoking/vaping tobacco and their effect on family, friends, and the community. Virtual engagement opportunities are important to keep our young community members involved and informed. The entries exceeded our expectations and included an extraordinarily talented pool of youth participants. Special thanks to Maywood's Councilmember Heber Marquez. His donation allowed us to extend awards to two winners. We learned a lot from the youth and hope to spread their messages far and wide.

Our winners were Natalie Hernandez and Jocelyn Piceno:
