The development of this website has been made possible only through the generous financial support of Bakersfield Mayor Harvey L. Hall, who is the Chair of the Kern County Homeless Collaborative's 10-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness Committee, and a champion of Home First! Kern County's 10-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness. Thank you, Mayor Hall!
The photographs and images of the homeless featured on this site are from The Bakersfield Californian photojournalist Felix Adamo and Los Angeles-based artist Pat Berger, both of whom have exhibited their work at the Bakersfield Museum of Art and other institutions.
