Berks Connections/Pretrial Services
Berks Connections/Pretrial Services (BCPS) is a nonprofit organization that provides both pretrial services and reentry programming for inmates and returning citizens, as well as services for their children and loved ones. Our reentry workforce development and housing programs equip returning citizens with the tools and support necessary to become productive members of our community. Our Family Connections programs serve to lessen the negative impact on children and families affected by parental incarceration. Additionally, BCPS serves as the court appointed County Pretrial Services agency with services focused on interviewing and assessing defendants’ risk and providing the information to the Court, supervising defendants on pretrial release, and providing staffing and assistance to the county’s diversionary programs.
