Established in 1957, Riverbrook provides residential placement and community-based day services to women with intellectual & developmental disabilities (ID/DD). The oldest all-women residence in the Northeast, Riverbrook is a model of care for these individuals. Our mission is “Empowering women with ID/DD to lead enviable adult lives.” Women who reside at Riverbrook work and volunteer with over 20 community partners. Sites include the Red Lion Inn, Norman Rockwell Museum, St. Paul’s Children Center, Meals on Wheels, Marian Helpers, Kripalu Yoga Center, Muddy Brook Elementary School, Kimball Farms, Elder Services of Berkshire County, Berkshire South, Timberlyn Heights and Community Access to the Arts.
COVID-19 IMPORTANT UPDATE
Riverbrook residents are staying busy at home utilizing Zoom, FaceTime and Skype to attend a variety of classes and stay connected with one another. Each week the residents have access to Virtual Meditation, Tai Chi and Writing. They attend several CATA workshops including Dance, Music and Art. Some women exercise with friends online, some check in on the seniors they were serving Meals on Wheels to. On Monday mornings the women in Stockbridge get together for Zoom Coffee Chat with their Riverbrook sister’s from afar. Each individual gets a chance to talk about the week ahead and express how they are feeling during these challenging times. The gatherings always end with a hopeful, “See you soon!”
