A Thank You Message from Prospectus Berco’s Board Members

Members of our Board of Directors wanted to send a message of thanks to all Prospectus Berco employees for everything they do for participants. The dedicated work and care by all employees is truly making a difference in the lives of the people they work with. They’re all heroes within our community.

Covid-19 Mitigation – Temporary Operational Protocols – Green Phase:

Berks County is going Green on June 26th.

While entering the Green Phase, many people may think this is a greenlight for services to resume. For Prospectus Berco, Green means “go slow.”  The health of our program participants and employees is of primary importance to us, so we will gradually be rolling out our services over the summer months.

For the past several weeks, Day Services employees have been contacting individuals to evaluate people’s needs and to determine how we can maximize our resources to serve participants. At the same time, we will continue to follow the CDC guidelines regarding building capacity, and everyone will need to continue to practice social distancing and follow specific protocols. Next week, we will announce the first phase of a plan to re-open our Day Services Programs at William Lane and Kutztown Road.

During the Green Phase, Residential Services will continue to monitor its Community Homes very closely. Family visitations may resume by contacting the Program Supervisor to schedule an appointment. Again, the health and safety of program participants and employees is our primary concern.  All visitors will need to have their temperature taken, follow social distancing practices, and will have to wear masks while visiting.  Click here for a complete copy of our Visitors Guidelines.

Corporate offices will continue to have a “no visitors policy” until further notice.  Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the administrative offices available by calling (610) 372-4637. Questions regarding Prospectus Berco and its programs can be directed to Jody Wagner at ext. 110.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during this time.

Prospectus Berco: Welcome Back

Berks County going green on June 26, was the stimulus for our Day Programs to develop a phased reopening of services. The first phase, Phase One, will have a limited number of participants (10% – 20% of the former attendance) returning to each program beginning July 20th.
We are excited about being able to reopen but are also extremely cautious about ensuring the safety of everyone. We created this video to demonstrate the procedures that we expect participants to follow when they return to Day Programs.
