Welcome to LIFT!

Long Island Families Together (LIFT) is a parent-governed, youth-guided, 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. LIFT was created to raise awareness about children's mental health services on Long Island, and across New York State. Thanks to the efforts of many family members and professionals, LIFT is able to bring about positive changes to the lives of the families and youth we serve in our communities. Our website provides ways for you to learn more about LIFT and get involved. With your help, we can continue to make a difference. Thanks for visiting us. Your support is greatly appreciated.


Mentoring a child helps them to see unlimited possibilities for the future, learn something new and most importantly, realize that somebody cares about them.

While it might seem simple to say talents can help others, actually identifying your talents and putting them to good use can be a little bit more difficult.

If you strive to live an altruistic lifestyle, there are plenty of gifts you can give your loved one on Mother’s Day that also give back to others in the community.
