Berks Personnel Network (BPN) offers supported employment services to adults in order to support them in gaining and maintaining employment. Support services include career exploration, resume development, networking with employers, assistance with employment applications, interview guidance and support, job negotiation, job accommodation facilitation, and job coaching support. All employment opportunities are matched to the skills, interests, and preferences of each individual. Services are funded through OVR, SAM, UW, and Ticket to Work.
A Supported Employment Support Plan (SESP) is used to review all evaluations and assessments a customer has completed determining the level of support and services the customer may need to obtain and maintain competitive integrated employment.
Extended Services are those supports given to customers who have not yet achieved stability on the job or need additional supports to maintain employment. These services are provided by OVR only in cases where there are no alternative funding sources.
The offices of Berks Personnel Network are open Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm. Appointments are suggested. For more information, email BerksPersonnelNetwork@trsinc.org or call 610-288-1448. Fax 610-374-9920.
