We are delight­ed to announce that Bensalem social work­er, Jacqui Owens was one of four pro­fes­sion­als select­ed to rep­re­sent the many pro­fes­sion­als in her field as an “Unsung Hero.”

As a social work­er, Jacqui works in pro­fes­sion­al part­ner­ships with teach­ers and sup­port per­son­nel to pro­vide an edu­ca­tion­al sys­tem where stu­dents can real­ize their true poten­tial.  Each and every day she helps strug­gling stu­dents and their fam­i­lies dream dif­fer­ent­ly.  She helps our stu­dents over­come obsta­cles to their edu­ca­tion; while work­ing with agen­cies and orga­ni­za­tions help­ing to pro­tect vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren and adults.
