Transforming Lives

Every day the Flood Bakersfield Street Outreach teams are out in the homeless communities. They are the front-line in the effort to transform the lives of the homeless in Bakersfield and the surrounding areas. Not only are they on the lookout for new homeless people, they also check in on, and build relationships with those that are already known. They transport people to get vital documents, healthcare, and other places that are usually out of reach for the homeless.

They also respond to emergency calls from county and city organizations, as well as the Kern County Sheriff and the Bakersfield Police Departments regarding homeless people who need assistance. Ultimately, they identify homeless people, build trust, and get them started in the process back to health and home.
