2022 Children’s Home of Reading Golf Tournament was Huge Success

CHOR's Annual Golfing Event and Fundraiser

Hosted by Keith Byars, Timmy Brown and Dr. Moore

The Children’s Home of Reading (CHOR) reintroduced their annual golf tournament after taking a two year hiatus because of COVID-19. The Children’s Home of Reading is a leading non-profit  social service agency offering mental and behavioral health, and education services  to care for at-risk children, youth and their families from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh with offices in Berks County, Bucks County, 

This year’s event was held at one of Pennsylvania’s top 20 golf courses, the always challenging LedgeRock. The event was hosted by former Ohio State University legend and the Philadelphia Eagles 1986 1st round draft pick, running back Keith Byars. The other celebrity hosts were one of the nations leading trauma surgeons, Dr. Ronald Moore from South Florida and country music artist, Timmy Brown. This year’s main event sponsor was Thompkins Vist Financial Services along with a host of other corporate sponsors and donors from Berks county. Unfortunately, no one was able to win the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer that was the donated prize by Savage 61, for making a hole in one on the 11th hole.

One of the highlights leading up to the golfing event was having Keith Byars, Dr. Moore and Barry Wenrich a former child resident of the Children’s Home of Reading from 1976 to 1977, tour several of the CHOR facilities and interact with many of the students that are currently enrolled at CHOR. Barry shared his captivating life story with the students and current staff on how his stay at CHOR has positively impacted and completely changed his life. He is currently a social worker that resides in Columbus, Ohio and an alumni of Ohio State University. He says his stay at CHOR as a youth has fueled his life long passion and dedication to changing the life of the kids he has counseled for the past 37 years.

Conexio Care and Coras Grand Opening

Conexio and CORAS’s grand opening of their new state-of-art facility in Delaware represents a significant step to improving access to behavioral health services in the state. The building provides integrated substance abuse and behavioral health treatment services. Services are tailored to meet the unique needs of each person, with a focus on evidence-based care.

One of the primary benefits of the new facility is that it provides a single point of access to all levels of care. This means that people can start at any level of care and then progress as needed. The facility also has a wraparound care team that offers a spectrum of services, ranging from primary care to children’s and family-based services.

Outpatient clinics, Opioid Treatment Programs, and Intensive Outpatient Programs are also available at the facility.

This new facility is a much-needed addition to the state of Delaware. Behavioral health services are in high demand, and there is a significant unmet need for these services. The opening of this new facility will help address this need and provide people with the care they need.
