Heart 9/11

Vin Chiocchio was contacted by Gregg & Weis Architects who was working with HEART 9/11, a charitable organization made up of a team of first responders - FDNY, NYPD, PAPD and the NYC Building Trades - that bonded in the aftermath of September 11, 2001 to honor the sacrifices of brave colleagues, veterans and family members. HEART 9/11 received a call for help from a veteran in Hamden who suffers with PTSD. The veteran was in a need of help in the rebuilding and expanding of her small cape home. The work to be done included a second-floor addition that would allow the family to grow as well as new HVAC, new plumbing and electric, the addition of a bedroom and bathroom and a new front porch.

After hearing the Veteran's story, Controlled Air stepped forward and provided the resources to replace and upgrade the home’s HVAC system. You can find out more about this amazing organization and the family by reading the article in the link below and visiting Heart 9/11’s website:
