The mission of the Partnership is to make a difference by offering a variety of prevention services to the Berks County community that help to address problems and risks associated with: alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs; violence; teen pregnancy; abuse; crime; school dropout; and other related social issues.
The Community Prevention Partnership of Berks County (Partnership) was established in 1992 through a federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's Center for Substance Abuse Prevention. It incorporated in 1993 and, after attaining its 501(c)(3) status in 1995 began its own fiscal and programmatic operations. Currently, the Partnership receives funds through grants/contracts with: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration/ Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, Administration for Children & Families/Office of Family Assistance, Department of Public Welfare/Office of Child Development & Early Education, Pennsylvania Commission On Crime and Delinquency, Council On Chemical Abuse, Service Access and Management, Schuylkill County Drug and Alcohol, Berks County Mental Health/Developmental Disabilities, Berks County Human Services Development Fund, Berks County Intermediate Unit, Berks County Community Foundation, and the United Way. The Partnership also receives funding from training and evaluation contracts and from private donations.
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
