SOS Berks Mural Highlights the Role of Family in Recovery

“Mi Recuperación, Mi Familia”
Located at 9th & Oley Sts
(Installed August 2023)
Lead artist: Leslie Ramos

Located on a wall measuring about 1500 square feet, adjacent to a popular Hispanic market, this mural design was created by artist Leslie Ramos. It is based on the recovery story of Jose Lugo, who recalled for her his life growing up in Puerto Rico, his struggles with substance use disorder, and the role his family and childhood memories played in helping him overcome those struggles.

The artwork was hand painted off-site onto 60 panels by an estimated 1,000 volunteers who attended various community painting sessions over a period of six months.
