OSSINING , NY, USA, December 7, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Ossining, NEW YORK – The Open Door Foundation presented longstanding Scarborough resident Howard Schrader with the “Community Leadership Award” at its signature Fall benefit, “Tune In2 Support Open Door” on November 14 at Brae Burn Country Club. Schrader is General Counsel and Executive Vice President of the Chubb Overseas General Division of Chubb Limited and has played a leading role in the governance of both the Open Door Foundation and Open Door Family Medical Center – a non-profit pioneer community health center providing primary medical care and wellness programs to low-income families throughout Westchester and Putnam. Open Door also honored Scott Fein of BioReference Laboratories, with the “Industry Leadership Award.”

Howard Schrader has spent the past 20 years standing behind the people and patients of Open Door, having served on the Open Door Board since 1998. Open Door provides more than 300,000 patient visits annually serving nearly 57,000 people who might not otherwise have access to health care services.

“Some of our most critical services are not covered by third-party reimbursements or government grants including Care Coordination, Integrated Behavioral Health Care, and Wellness and Chronic Disease Prevention Programs,” said Lindsay Farrell, Open Door Family Medical Center President and CEO. She added, “Taken together these services cost over $2 million annually. Howard has been instrumental in providing critical philanthropic support to fill these financial holes so we can provide quality comprehensive health care and wellness programs to the community,”

A life-long Westchester resident, Schrader led the successful capital campaign that refurbished and expanded Open Door’s flagship Ossining site and has been a prolific Open Door fundraiser ever since. He led the re-launch of the Open Door Foundation, served as its first Chairman, and continues to serve on the Open Door Board.

At Chubb, Howard helped establish and helps direct the activities of the Chubb Rule of Law Fund, which has distributed almost a million dollars in grants to projects which support strong, stable and fair legal institutions in the 54 countries and territories in which Chubb operates.

Sue Greene Fuirst, Open Door Foundation President commented, “The majority of Open Door patients are living at or below the federal poverty line. Howard’s work at Open Door has had a tremendous impact on the greater community, overcoming barriers to good health including food insecurity, language barriers, low literacy levels, unstable housing, and lack of insurance.”

A graduate of Brown University and Columbia Law School, Howard resides in Scarborough with his wife Nancy (also an Open Door volunteer) and their children.
