Take the Berks County Disconnected Youth/Young Adult survey

The Berks County Workforce Development Board and United Way have teamed to learn how they can better support the county’s “disconnected young adults” – those who are not in school or are either unemployed or under employed.  Their survey is open to young adults, their families, friends and community members and includes questions about barriers to employment and education, sources of income and demographic information.

Those who complete the survey are eligible to win one of two $50 gift cards or four $25 gift cards to Wawa convenience stores.  Click here for the survey in English.  Click here for the survey in Spanish. The surveys are available through the end of April.  Please help!

Welcome Executive Director Elise Chesson!

Dear Family Promise Supporters,

I am excited to welcome our new Executive Director Elise Chesson to Family Promise of Berks County! Elise started on Monday, 4/3/17, and already has many ideas to nurture the programs we offer and expand the help that Family Promise can offer to the community.  Her enthusiasm and energy will inspire us all.

We appreciate your continued support of Family Promise and especially in this time of transition.  Please continue to pray for the Family Promise mission as we move forward.
