Safe Shelter for the Homeless

In 2013, the Kern County Point-in-Time Homeless Count (Homeless Census) revealed that, on any given night of the year, there are 1,158 local people living in homelessness. About 87% (1,008) of all homeless are found in the Metropolitan Bakersfield area; about 13% (150) are found in rural communities.

We provide safe overnight shelter, showers, laundry service, 3-meals each day, comprehensive case management services, and access to job readiness training for more than 200 homeless men on a daily basis.

Providing shelter to those in need

The Best Strategy

The Homeless Intervention Services (HIS) staff works one-on one with each guest to determine the best strategy for complete life restoration and an eventual transition back into society.
