“Being a Newburgh native I feel a special connection to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh because I feel like I’m making an impact and giving back to the city I was born in. When I first became affiliated with Habitat as an AmeriCorps member we were doing work on William street, which felt amazing considering the first apartment my parents brought me home to when I was born was on William St. a couple of blocks down from where we worked. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to work with families in Newburgh to provide them with proper shelter and the opportunity to thrive in our area. I look forward to continuing to serve my community and help Newburgh grow while working for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh!” –Isaiah Casiano
