Berkshire's Sheltered Hearts Program

Berkshire Farm Center was founded in 1886 in Canaan, NY to care for boys from the New York City area, many who were children of new immigrants. Now, with 133 years of experience in family preservation and reunification, we have created the Sheltered Hearts Program.



Our Goal:

Our goal is to provide safe and timely reunification for a child and their family or suitable sponsor.



In partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services, the Sheltered Hearts Program provides family reunification and short-term shelter for children who have entered the United States without a guardian. Children reside in our family-style cottage located on our 2,000-acre campus while our bilingual staff provide a safe and nurturing environment for children.
