Berkshire Children and Families improves the lives of children by strengthening family and community relationships.
Stephanie and Jamie were eager to grow their family by adopting children from foster care. They longed to parent children who needed them, to honor family connections and to help children achieve their potential. Mehki and Khalil, ages 4 and 5, were in need of a loving family home where they could grow up together -- a family who would allow them to see their older brother and their grandfather. Stephanie and Jamie were matched with Mehki and Khalil by a BCF adoption worker. The newly formed family happily celebrated the boys' adoption recently.
Berkshire Children and Families serves more than 3,600 children and families throughout the Pioneer Valley and Berkshire County each year and is a recognized regional leader in social services. In the Pioneer Valley BCF programs include Adoption, Foster Care, PAVE (Parent Aide Volunteers), Community Centered Family Support and the CBHI Family Partners program.
BCF is dedicated to ensuring that every child has a family, and every family is part of a community.
