It’s been a bittersweet year for Family Service Association of Bucks County.
On the one hand, the nonprofit served a record number of people — 30,807 to be exact — through services such as housing assistance, counseling and addiction treatment. But at the same time, it was in mourning. On Feb. 20, Audrey J. Tucker, who led the organization as CEO for 40 years, passed away suddenly but peacefully.
Despite the devastating loss, Family Service kept moving forward. It’s what Tucker would have wanted. Last Thursday, staff, volunteers and elected officials gathered at Spring Mill Manor in Ivyland to not only celebrate Tucker’s impact, but also Family Service’s 65th anniversary.
