Evening Programs

Celebrating Life After 50…

As part of our mission to provide support for our aging community and the devoted people that care for them, Berks Encore had been offering a variety of evening programs. In today’s environment, we are offering zoom presentations to practice social distancing and still provide important information for families and older adults. With our evening zoom classes, our goal is to make Berks Encore’s resources and services available to individuals that still work during the day.
