Overview

Many of Berkshire's programs are community-, home-, and school-based and include foster care, group homes, family preservation and reunification, truancy and crisis prevention, and counseling (individual, group, family).

In addition to community-based programs, Berkshire’s Residential Treatment Center (RTC), located on our 2,000 acre campus amid the beautiful Berkshire Mountains, provides specialized services to adolescent boys and their families, including an accredited curriculum in an on-site junior/senior high school. Berkshire creates a caring, structured, and stable environment that provides adolescent boys and their families with an opportunity to learn how to lead healthy, productive lives together.
