Welcome to Kids' Place
For the last 30 years, Berkshire County Kids' Place has been a safe place where help can begin for children who have experienced violence in their lives, either as victims of abuse or witnesses to domestic violence.
We provide a caring, home-like atmosphere that coordinates the combined knowledge of law enforcement, social service, medical, prosecutorial, and mental health agencies to ensure an effective response to childhood trauma.
Together we can make a difference.
