First Five Kern
First 5 Kern is leading the charge to increase developmental screening in Kern County – and link children to needed services in our community. Through funding provided by the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), Kern Behavioral Health and Recovery Services, and a partnership with Community Action Partnership of Kern (CAPK) 2-1-1 Kern, Help Me Grow Kern will enable parents and caregivers the opportunity to perform the Ages and Stages Questionnaires to determine how their child is progressing.
Kern Regional Center is one of 21 private, nonprofit regional centers contracted by the State of California through the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) to coordinate community-based services and support for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
KRC serves nearly 8,000 clients in Kern, Inyo and Mono Counties. Our counties cover approximately 22,000 square miles with a population of almost 900,000 people
