The Mission at Kern County
The Mission at Kern County recently celebrated 60 years of providing hope and restoration to a hurting population in our city. The Mission at Kern County provides shelter to nearly 300 guests each night through their Homeless Intervention Services and Christian Discipleship Residential Program. Every year, The Mission serves more than 200,000 meals. That’s more than 500 every day!
The mission also has a program to provide housing and mentorship for individuals who have graduated from the program as they are transitioning into the workforce.
In 2018, they opened a new home for women with children to help women become free from life-controlling addictions without having to surrender their children to the foster care system.
