Monetary donations are the best way of to assist in the local effort to elminate homelessness in Kern - providing resources not currently funded by grants.
Inkind donations can free up funds that would otherwise be designated. For instance, a ream of paper, gifts of bottled waters, gently used refrigerators, household items - all provide items needed by programs to help people escape homelessness and move into housing (and case management support to assist with cultural and paradigm shifts from living on the streets to living a self sufficient life of wellness).
The gift of your time and talents is can also help. We are currently working on staffing events such as the Kern County Veterans Stand Down (October), the Kern County Homeless Census (January), and Project Homeless Connect (Spring).
PLEASE CONTACT THE HOMELESSNESS PROJECT MANAGER TO BE A PART OF THIS EXCITING SOLUTION!
