Few community interventions exist to reduce secondhand exposure to tobacco smoke in the home. This study presents the coaching process of a larger intervention to promote smoke-free homes across an efficacy and 2 effectiveness trials. It furthers assesses the coaching call's reach and participants' satisfaction with the call across three intervention sites. The sources of the data were from baseline and 3-month follow-up surveys, coaching forms or online tracking system and interviews with coaches. Reach for the coaching call across trials was fairly high from 72% to 92%. Overall, the majority of participants were highly satisfied with the intervention (M = 3.76) and found it useful in creating a smoke-free home (M = 3.63). Common goals set were changing the environment to support a home smoking ban (e.g. putting up signs, removing ashtrays) (82%) or picking a date (60%). Challenges to a smoke-free home were consistent with other literature on barriers related to household smoking restrictions, including need for assistance in quitting, outside weather and smokers who do not want to quit. Additional research is needed to explore differential reach and reactions to the coaching call as it is disseminated and the impact of coaching call on the outcome of a smoke-free home.
