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.

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.
