May is National Foster Care Awareness Month

It is a time when we bring awareness to the need for foster families across New York State.

Individuals, groups and businesses can show support and help bring awareness by pledging to Go Purple for Berkshire throughout the month of May!


Be creative - dress in purple clothing, purple hats, or any other creative ideas for showcasing the Berkshire Purple and helping us build awareness of this important need. 


There are 25,600 kids in foster care across NYS

Everyday 69 kids come into care

We served 824 children in foster care in 2019

Pledge to Go Purple


When you make a commitment to Go Purple for Berkshire, we encourage you to print our flyer and display it to help others understand why you are wearing purple.










Together, we can bring awareness and hopefully encourage others to learn more about becoming a foster parent. 

Don't forget to take pictures and tag us on Facebook & Instagram @berkshirefarmcenter and use the hash tag #gopurpleforberkshire


Be creative and let your purple shine!
