Today, Building Angels's founder Rocco Falcomata joined Ray Hadley in the studio, where it all started for Building Angels when Rocco heard about a way he could use his skill sets to give back to others, in this case "Sara's house. It was on this premise that Building Angels was formed. When Rocco heard about Sara and the sudden passing of her husband which left her with an incomplete renovation, 3 children and a 4th on the way, he contacted Ray and became the one of the key facilitators in co-ordinating the trades to complete the works.
Seven years on, Rocco's vision for Building Angels continues and his passion for giving back to the community drives his commitment to Building Angels.
