Who We Are
Our mission is to create a sense of community and common purpose and we do that through a variety of programs and services. As people are connected to each other they enhance the community’s resiliency and identify and mobilize its assets and strengths. The Center holds the idea that as we make connections to one another we become visible and develop a broadened sense of belonging. With that visibility we become more accountable and invested in the community we live in.
What We Do
We serve 17 towns in the Southern Berkshires and average close to 2,000 members. Creating the social health benefits inherent in living in a close neighborhood is difficult in rural communities so Berkshire South is a place where those experiences and benefits become accessible and realized. We are a community organization dedicated to reaching out and building connections both within and beyond the walls of these facilities not only into our own community but to other, distant communities similarly dedicated to the spirit of connectedness and personal growth.
Currently, Berkshire South has in-person opportunities available including:
- Volunteering at our Community Thanksgiving Supper on November 23
- Helping with our Shining Star Holiday Gift program
- Outreach support at events
- Administrative duties
- Weekly community supper help
- Volunteer chefs needed for supper program
- Landscape help
- Events planned for 2022
We are also seeking volunteer newsletter article writers, help on committees, and potentially the Board.
