Family Promise of Berks County
- Non-profit Organizations
Family Promise of Berks County is located in the heart of downtown Reading, Pennsylvania. Our organization is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and affiliate of Family Promise National.We partner with local communities and networks of volunteers to provide services to homeless families and unaccompanied youth throughout Berks county. Current programs focus on rapid rehousing, homelessness prevention, mediation, advocacy and emergency assistance. Our doors opened in July of 2006 and we have been graciously serving communities in need ever since.
Our unique model recognizes that maintaining family units increases successful outcomes. The latter allows for a single father or mother to remain with his or her children while being sheltered. An average week at Family Promise of Berks serves 3 families and 5 teens while providing families with 168 meals and 84 bed nights. The volunteers we work with spend an average of 274 hours providing these services while case managers work with families on gaining independence.
