Since moving to our location at 840 William Lane in 2006, the Adult Training Program has grown by 30 %, and we have reached capacity.  To meet this growth, we purchased an adjacent building on Kutztown Road.  Our expansion will include four additional classrooms, office space, and a multi-purpose room.

What is the Challenge?

Brad & Carroll Scribner have pledged to match up to $125,000 in donations to reach a campaign goal of $250,000.   For every dollar surpassing this goal, the donation designated for the Challenge Campaign will still be utilized for the building needs at our new property.    These funds will be used to purchase needed equipment, including adaptive; furnishings, and facility enhancements to improve the safety and comfort for the program participants.

The 2014 Annual Fund Campaign will begin in November of 2013 and continue through to June 30, 2014.  Donations made to the Annual Fund can be designated as a restricted fund for the Matching Fund Challenge Campaign.

Memorial/Honorarium Leaves

In the foyer of our Main Entrance, we built a Memorial/Honorarium Wall with engraved bricks and a serene mural painted by artist Michael Miller.  Our bricks are filled, but with the skill of Hilltop Studios, we are creating clay leaves which can be engraved and glazed to place at various locations on the wall.  The oak leaves are from our property and have space for two or three lines with a maximum of 20 characters per line.  While the minimum cost of a memorial or honorarium leaf is $100, charitable donations in excess of that amount are gratefully accepted.

If interested in a leaf, please contact Sue Stalnecker at 610.372.4637, ext. 103 or sstalnecker@prospectusberco.org, or click here to download an order form.

 

MISSION STATEMENT

Prospectus Berco is dedicated to inspiring people with disabilities or other special needs to lead meaningful lives by providing innovative services that promote dignity and respect.

 

Berks County is filled with caring and compassionate individuals who want to support and uplift those who need help.  How a community treats individuals who face obstacles in their lives and have difficulty with day to day activities is a reflection of the people who live there.

Giving of ourselves, our time, and our resources is a personal decision. Our reasons to give to a non-profit organization may be because we believe in the organization; are passionate about the service they provide; or know that our help is needed in order for the agency to achieve its mission.

All of us strive to lead meaningful lives with purpose and dignity.  The individuals at Prospectus Berco with whom we have the privilege of working face more obstacles than most of us will ever know.  With your help and support, they can lead meaningful lives that promote dignity and respect.
