United Way Of Kern County


Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way of Kern County's goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living United means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the Kern community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
