Kern County Seeking New Homeless Director

Against the backdrop of an exploding homeless population, Kern County began restructuring its Homeless Collaborative this year. For the first time, city and county leaders were placed under the same roof to deal with the issue. A new executive board was established.

Now, Kern officials are looking for an executive to oversee it all.

“Kern county is really excited about getting someone in here who has the ability to connect all the pieces and make sure we’re all working together and we’re looking to our left and right making sure everyone is included,” said county spokesperson Megan Person (KGET).

Kern is looking for an individual who understands local statutes, knows how the Collaborative works, and who has a degree in a field like public policy.
