Northern Berkshire Community Coalition

Organizing and supporting the Northern Berkshire community for over 33 years!

What is Safe Homes? Safe Homes of North Berkshire is a network of parents who pledge that they:

  1. will be at home when their teens have parties and
  2. will not allow the illegal use of alcohol, drugs, or tobacco at teen parties in their home or on their property. Pledge signers must renew the pledge each year.

The list of Safe Homes parents is published periodically in a Safe Homes pamphlet distributed throughout North County, in advertisements, and elsewhere.

Why Safe Homes? Many parents feel that “they are the only ones” who want a safe, drug- and alcohol-free environment for their children and feel uncomfortable talking to other parents and to youth about their concerns.  Research shows that parents who set clear rules, monitor their teens’ activities, and provide a safe environment greatly lower the risk that their children will be involved in using alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.

Who Should Join? North Berkshire parents and guardians of children in Grades 6-12.

Take the pledge:

  1. I pledge to provide a Safe Home:
  2. I will provide adult supervision for all children visiting my home.
  3. I will provide a secure storage place for all forms of alcohol, firearms, and other potentially hazardous items.
  4. I will not allow parties or gatherings in my home when I am not there.
  5. I will not allow the illegal use of alcohol, tobacco or other drugs by teens in my home or on my property.
