For Kern County's women and & children in need.
The Lee and Krystyna Jamieson Recovery Home for Women with Children
The Mission at Kern County introduced ‘The Lee & Krystyna Recovery Home for Women with Children’ on May 3rd, 2018. This is a safe, 34-bed living environment that allows mothers to go through a 12-month recovery program while keeping their children with them. It is our goal to help them get out of unhealthy environments then give them the tools they need to provide for themselves and their families.
The Lee and Krystyna Jamieson Transitional Home for Women with Children
The Mission at Kern County opened “The Lee and Krystyna Jamieson Transitional Home for Women with Children” in October of 2021. Upon graduating from the 12-month Christian Discipleship Program, residents can move into this transitional housing with their children.
This home has 13 apartment-like suites, a year-round vegetable garden, commercial kitchen, playground, and computer lab. Each graduate works one-on-one with a dedicated staff member who counsels and guides them as they enter back into the workforce and society.
