Newtown, PA
– Pennswood Village CEO Benjamin Hoyle has been appointed to serve as Chair of the Board for Friends Services for the Aging (FSA), and Pennswood Village CFO Michael Griffin has been appointed to serve on the board as a member.

“I’m thrilled to begin my tenure as chair of the board for FSA,” said Benjamin Hoyle, Pennswood Village CEO. “As Pennswood’s CEO, I work every day to integrate Quaker principles into all that we do. To have the opportunity to work with FSA to further its mission and to collaborate with many fine institutions and leaders in senior living is truly humbling.”

FSA is a prominent Quaker organization that was founded in 1991 “as a mechanism to support Quaker-affiliated organizations providing services to older adults.” FSA provides services and support for member organizations, united in values and by continuing efforts to serve older adults on the basis of Friends’ belief in the dignity of all people. FSA and its member organizations believe that their communities and services are enriched by Quaker values that lead to policies of inclusion, diversity and nondiscrimination.

As a dedicated member of FSA, Pennswood Village is committed to embracing and integrating Quaker values and traditions into the personal level of compassion and care provided on their own campus, as well as hosting many FSA events and seminars for continued development of member organizations.
