Brentwood, NY (October 22, 2019) – Austin Williams CEO Rick Chiorando recently rolled up his sleeves to pitch in on the latest Habitat for Humanity project in Suffolk county in an effort to support the local Long Island community and the quest for affordable housing for everyone.
“It was a great day and gave us all a terrific feeling of accomplishment,” said Rick. “It was fun working together as a team and an honor to be able to help someone in need. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product.”
Chiorando helped to organize the outing for his fellow members in the 2018 class of The Energeia Partnership, which brings together a diverse group of ethical leaders from Long Island’s public, private and not-for-profit sectors to help address this region’s most complex issues: education, institutional racism, poverty and the working poor, land use, energy, transportation, healthcare and media/social networking.

Our mission is to work in partnership with thousands of Suffolk County volunteers and responsible, low-income families of all races, religions, and creeds to build and renovate homes so that there are decent houses in decent communities in which people can live and grow. Since 1988, Habitat Suffolk has empowered hundreds of families to achieve their dreams of homeownership through our affordable homeownership program. Habitat Suffolk’s goal is to build an average of 10 to 12 houses annually, building for as long as needed to make sure every family in Suffolk County has a simple, decent and affordable place to live and call home.
