2021 Life Improvement Awards Celebration
45 years ago, members of our community came together because they saw the need to change how we viewed incarcerated individuals. From its roots as the Prison Society of Berks County Prison Society to today’s Berks Connections/Pretrial Services, the common denominator has always been the vision that everyone deserves a second chance, and when given to tools to take the next steps, people will be more successful.
