Family Service’s Nathan Townsend Awarded FACT Scholarship for Continued Ed

ANOTHER SUCCESS STORY   by Jane Fetter, Public Relations-FACT

In 2004, Nathan Townsend had lost his job and by 2005 was facing death since he could no longer afford his medication.  Nathan somehow survived and realized that he had a purpose to his life. With a fulfillment of a dream, Nathan knew he had to “tell his story” and educate people about HIV/AIDS by becoming a National, motivational speaker.

With a Scholarship from FACT BUCKS COUNTY, Nathan obtained certification as a Life Coach from the World Coach Institute. Without the funding from FACT BUCKS COUNTY scholarship program, Nathan would not have been able to fulfill his dream. Nathan noted that his purpose was to “sell hope” to those affected by HIV/AIDS.

Currently, Nathan is the housing coordinator of Bucks Villa (New Hope), an independent living facility for people who are HIV positive or Living with AIDS.

On Saturday, June 20, 2015, Nathan Townsend presents THIS IS MY LIFE at the Mandell Theater at Drexel University. Tickets are available at or 267-918-8315.
