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 Partnership carries out its mission through mobilizing communities, providing them with education, technical assistance, and resources. It helps to identify the community's problems and develops strategies to address them. The mission is furthered by conducting research as part of federally funded initiatives to assess the effectiveness of programs developed and carried out by the Partnership.


The Community Prevention Partnership of Berks County was established in 1992 through a federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's Center for Substance Abuse Prevention. It was incorporated in 1993 and after attaining its 501 (c) (3) status in 1995 began its own fiscal and programmatic operations.
