Judith Raimondi and Tiffany S. Salvi

Grassroots community improvement has an illustrious history across the United States and one of the latest examples is right in our backyard. Raimondi and Salvi, Lindenhurst residents and mothers concerned with youth substance abuse and drinking, seek to unite the community by starting Lindenhurst Community Cares (LCC). LCC’s mentorships, after-school programs and educational forums are focused on preventing alcohol and drug use among the youngest in the area and they have support from both local and state governments along with local law enforcement. lindycares.org
