Chris CroneyThis DSP Recognition Week 2022, fellow staff and people supported would like to highlight Chris Croney’s exceptional support and ability to connect with others as a Direct Support Professional (DSP) at AHRC Nassau’s Stewart Ave. and School Street IRA residences. 

“Chris is always willing to rise above the call of duty, no matter what the circumstances, and when he can’t personally help, he tries to find alternate solutions to the situation. During the most difficult of times, we can be certain he will be there to offer comfort and support. He is reliable and has proven how dependable and trustworthy he is. He is a kindhearted spirit, who always has a smile on his face. He knows how to conduct himself in a manner that exemplifies his understanding of his roles as support and friend for all the people he provides support for and works with. Overall, we are truly blessed and honored to have the privilege of working with Chris. Stewart Ave and School Street is and will be forever grateful for his commitment to us.” – Margaret Occhiogrosso, AHRC Residential Services
