2-1-1 Kern County

2-1-1 Kern County, a program of Community Action Partnership of Kern (CAPK), provides comprehensive information and referral services that link Kern County residents to community health and human services and support.

Callers seeking assistance dial 2-1-1 and are connected with Information and Referral Specialists who utilize a resource directory to research and provide the information requested. 

CAPK has been designated by the California Public Utilities Commission as the
2-1-1 provider for Kern County. Services are available 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week to the 750,000 residents in the county.

This web page was funded by USDA SNAP, known in California as CALFresh, an equal opportunity provider and employer, and the California Department of Social Services.
