BCAP holds open house at new location in downtown Reading

READING, Pa. - A group that helps low-income families in Berks County is showing off its new location.

The Berks Community Action Program held an open house at its new offices at the former Exide building on Penn Street in downtown Reading.

B-CAP said it relocated from its old spot on Washington Street because the building was falling into a state of disrepair.

Officials also said the move benefits clients, especially those from outside Reading who aren't familiar with the city.

"So now it makes it more accessible to them. They come right downtown, they can park in the parking garage right here on Penn Street, boom, here's B-CAP," said Lawrence A. Berringer, B-CAP's executive director.

B-CAP also said the new location is more of a "one-stop shop" where clients can receive a variety of services under one roof.
