Your support is needed now more than ever!

‪On June 29th, our staff returned to the office with a staggered schedule following new protocols and procedures to ensure everyone's safety.  While we continue to provide services virtually, we are scheduling appointments to meet with clients in person and allow them to utilize our Computer Based Learning Center.‬


Our services and support are needed now more than ever as returning citizens face new challenges in the weeks and months ahead. Our costs to meet immediate needs will rise.

Berks Connections/Pretrial Services is proud to be certified by the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations (PANO) through their Standards for Excellence certification program. BCPS successfully completed this certification program by voluntarily opening itself up to scrutiny by a "jury of its peers" who examined our organization for compliance with PANO's Standards for Excellence: An Ethics and Accountability Code for the Nonprofit Sector.

Standards of Excellence are based on the fundamental values such as honesty, integrity, fairness, respect, trust, responsibility, and accountability. BCPS's programs and services, management, fundraising, and financial practices were examined in depth before the certification was awarded. BCPS is one of the first organizations to be certified under the Standards program that began in 2002.
