Updated March 3, 2022: Due to low COVID-19 levels within the Berks County community and in following current CDC guidelines, wearing a mask within common areas of our facilities is strongly encouraged but no longer required. However, masks may be required to be worn during sessions or group at your provider’s discretion. If you are not feeling well or have suspected or confirmed exposure, do not come in the building and please reschedule your appointment by calling (610) 374-4963. Face-to-face sessions continue and, if eligible, telehealth options remain available at this time. If you have a scheduled telehealth appointment, please arrange for child care during your session time. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding with the ever-changing situation.

The 4th Annual Mind Your Health

Another Year, Another Success!

Thank you to all attendees, vendors, volunteers and sponsors for your tremendous effort and participation in the 4th Annual Mind Your Health event! The day was full of activity, plenty of sun (and heat!), crazy balloon creations, delicious snacks and smoothies, an amazing assortment of raffle baskets and vendor displays, creatively decorated bikes (and other wheeled rides), and many smiling faces! If you were present for the event and have some feedback to share, we’d love to hear it! Email us at info@familyguidancecenter.com to let us know what we did well or what you’d like to see a little different. We’re always interested in hearing how we can improve on the experience for next time!
