Berks County Family Residential Center
About our facility
The Berks Family Residential Center was established in March 2001 as the first facility of its kind in the United States. The family residential concept allows families to remain together while awaiting the outcome of their immigration proceedings. The 85-bed facility is designed to accommodate the needs of families in a non-secure detention setting. Given the wide age range of those housed here, the ability to meet their broad spectrum of needs is a must. School age children attend classes for approximately seven hours a day. In addition, adults can elect to attend English language classes. Recreation, social and spiritual needs are also met through programs within the facility. This is one of two facilities within the ICE Health Service Corps that offer clinicians an opportunity to work with patients in a family practice setting.
