ELLSWORTH — Longtime Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County Executive Director Jody Wolford-Tucker has announced her plans to retire in November. After 16 years at the helm of the nonprofit, Wolford-Tucker has seen the organization through much growth and many changes.
“My 16 years serving as executive director of Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County have been so rich — rich with the most important stuff of life — connection, presence, commitment to making others’ lives a little easier, and I am extremely grateful,” she said.
The board of directors has begun a planning process for hiring the next executive director to ensure the strength and continuation of the 42-year-old organization’s service to the community.
“One of the things that I am most grateful for,” says Wolford-Tucker, “is the strength of relationships that HVHC shares with so many community colleagues and supporters, as well as our amazing volunteers. These connections and community support are what allows the hospice volunteer magic to happen.”
