Yesterday, Wednesday, September 16, 2020, it was announced that the Housing Authority of the County of Kern will receive nearly $15 million from the State of California to purchase and rehabilitate existing housing, converting it into permanent supportive housing.

BKRHC Executive Director Anna Laven, Ed.D., released the following statement:

Homelessness ends when every person in Kern County has a permanent place to call home. Today’s announcement is a major win for our community and will directly impact our efforts to reduce homelessness by increasing our inventory of Permanent Supportive Housing. We look forward to supporting the Housing Authority and collaborating with our stakeholders in business, local government and the community as Homekey proceeds.

Anna Laven, Ed.D., Executive Director, BKRHC
