Benefitting the Bakersfield Homeless Center
Proceeds benefit the children and families at the Bakersfield Homeless Center (BHC). BHC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit committed to serving the fastest growing population of homeless in our community – our children – who cannot speak for themselves or ask for our help. On average, over 100 children a night stay at BHC; warm, snug, and well-fed. BHC is dedicated to serving homeless children and assisting their parents in taking control of their family’s future. Contributions to BHC help provide supportive services such as shelter, food, clothing, childcare, and assistance to women, children, and families in need. Together, we can break the cycle of homelessness by reaching into the lives and hearts of the homeless and instilling the knowledge and support needed to become self-sufficient.
