The Safe Berks Walk For NO MORE will take place on Saturday, June 15, from 9-11 a.m. The Awards Presentation will begin at 9:30 a.m. with BCTV and Wyomissing Restaurant and Bakery receiving our Voices For Change awards. The morning portion will continue with a message from our CEO and several others highlighting our renovations and upcoming events, and we will reveal some exciting news!

After the program, we will gather in front of Sly Fox Taphouse and start our walk to the 400 block of Penn Avenue. This walk may only cover a few blocks, but it makes an enormous statement. We are saying together, as a community: NO MORE domestic violence! NO MORE sexual assault!

The Safe Berks Walk For NO MORE serves as the kickoff of Art on the Avenue in West Reading.

After the Walk For NO MORE, Safe Berks will offer information about our free services from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the 400 block of Penn Avenue as part of Art on the Avenue. Safe Berks staff and volunteers will be present all day, sharing information about the free and confidential services we offer survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. In addition to raising funds to support Safe Berks, we will also raise awareness about these important issues.

Safe Berks provides a safe haven and support for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault through education, advocacy, and a relentless commitment to prevent abuse. Safe Berks services include shelter, a 24-hour Hotline and text line, counseling, legal services, community programs and education, medical advocacy, and systems advocacy. Safe Berks services are free and confidential. Services are available in English and Spanish and will be translated into any other language needed.

Safe Berks served more than 4,000 clients in the last fiscal year. Our 24-Hour Hotline number is 844-789-SAFE (7233), or text SAFE BERKS to 20121.
