Bakersfield/Kern County, California, has functionally ended chronic homelessness!
News & Events
Built for Zero is working to develop a roadmap for homeless response systems that addresses racial disparities. We believe that the same rigorous improvement techniques that have helped communities drive better outcomes across the general population can also help them surface and begin to dismantle the racism that pervades public systems.
Built for Zero has certified Bakersfield, California as the fifth community in the United States to receive this certification for making chronic, or long-term, homelessness rare.
