Welcome to the
Kern Family Education & Resource Center
Your loved one working through recovery is not the only one in need of support.
Whether you're in need of resources, have trouble finding help, or have questions about something else, the Kern Family Education & Resource Center (Kern FERC) is here to help guide you.
Kern FERC is a family/caregiver-centered program that is dedicated to helping families navigate mental health and/or substance use services and resources. It provides information, education, advocacy and support services to family/caregivers of children, adolescents, transitional age youth, adults, and older adults with mental illness and/or substance use disorders living
in all regions of Kern County.
