UPCOMING EVENTS FOR 2021- At this time due to the COVID-19 restrictions for our county and state, we have limited our events and activities till further notice.  The organization thanks you for your patience while we work together through this process.  We hope to operate our daily functions and activities for the Autism population in Kern County soon, as this impacts all fundraisers, April Autism Awareness Events and Camp Scholarships for this summer.  Again we ask for your patience till we can get further answers to move forward.  In the meantime, if you or your family is in need of resources, please contact us via email: kernautism@gmail.com or via Facebook Messenger.  Our office remains closed due to its location downtown near the hospital.
