As a Life Improvement Business , BCPS works daily to improve the lives of returning citizens and their families. Hope, opportunity and second chances can have a lasting impact on individuals, families and communities.


It is through dedicated staff and board members, caring volunteers, generous supporters and effective community partnerships that BCPS continues to expand programming to meet the growing need in our community. When we work together, great things happen!


We are so proud of Paris Nelson!!


Paris graduated from our Rebuilding Reentrants & Reading (R3) program and was hired by Safe Berks as their Facilities Coordinator. She loves putting the knowledge, skills and tools she gained from R3 to work for this local organization that serves a vital need in our community. The staff at Safe Berks love Paris too!

Great job Paris! Thank you Safe Berks for providing a second chance and opportunity for Paris to put her talent to work!
