BPD and non-profit make a world of difference for those most vulnerable

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Bakersfield Police Department and a non-profit have joined forces to bring change and relief to homeless people in Kern County. 

Flood Ministries and BPD are ensuring the most vulnerable can get a break and receive housing through the Home First Project. 

The program is funded by the Housing Authority of the county of Kern and is a Kern County homeless collaborative effort.

Already, one man is living a world of difference. 

The first home was given to a man named Arthur Misener earlier this week. He has been living on the streets for more than 22 years now - making this new home truly a blessing.
