Narrative

Vocational training and worksite instruction is an integral part of both the residential and day program at Riverbrook. Program participants pick and choose the type of work they want to do. Some of them have chosen positions in housekeeping, laundry, clerical work, food services, or gardening at one of our employment sites nestled throughout the Berkshire  County area.  Self-employment is also an option — two participants have chosen to start their own businesses, one in automobile detailing, the other in Braille transcription. A group of women work together to run Exceptionally Yours, a home cleaning service. We are always open to creating positions that fit the need of the individual. 

 Riverbrook Residence offers services throughout the Berkshire County area.  Day Programs are mostly concentrated in the Southern Berkshire towns of: Stockbridge, West Stockbridge, Great Barrington, Sheffield, Egremont, Lee and Lenox.  Programs occassionally extend to the Central Berkshire/Pittsfield area.
