Terrace Ave in Hempstead, NY once was a crime & drug riddled community. At one time, the Village of Hempstead Police would have to get permission to come on this block. Since 2008, crime has decreased over 75%. In order to continue with the positive forward change I AM TERRACE AVE was formed in January 2011. Our mission is to unlock the potential of the residents of Terrace Ave by empowering them to help lessen neighborhood tensions, combat community deterioration and juvenile delinquency while maintaining focus on family and volunteerism. Our goal, with your help, is to raise money to obtain 501(c)(3) status.
