Embracing a trauma-informed model of care, we work with children and families to overcome their past traumas so they can live safely and take control of their lives. With programs and services all across New York State, Berkshire provides trauma-informed care right where children and their families need us the most; in their homes and communities. And, when working with families in their homes is not an option, Berkshire provides a safe haven for children in need of care through one of our over 550 certified foster homes, community group homes, and non-secure and secure detention centers.
In 2021, we served a total of 8,366 children and their families across New York State. Below is a breakdown by program area:
Our Foster Care Program's primary goal is to work alongside our foster families to reunify children with their biological families as quickly as possible. When that is not an option, our team works tirelessly to identify “Forever Families” for those youth freed for adoption.
