About Us

Drug Free Long Island Board would like to thank our community for all the support throughout our 11+  years! 
It is through the support of TOB Supervisor Joseph Saladino, Commissioner of Parks Joe Pinto, Senator John Brooks, Legislator James Kennedy, Legislator Rose Walker, Legislator Laura Schaeffer, Legislator Spencer, Legislator Josh Lafarzan, Assemblyman Michael Durso, TOH Supervisor Chad Lupinacci and LICADD that our organization can work with our communities - we are truly blessed to have their support.
 
We look forward to the future years ahead partnering with LICADD, Thomas’ Hope, LIPRC, Massapequa Chamber, Lions Club, LICAB and other organization - uniting Communities and removing the stigma of this epidemic to give the support needed for so many families throughout Long Island.
 
We are actively seeking additional like-minded coalitions and community-based organizations to partner with Drug Free Long Island to help strengthen our vision and mission.
