H.E.A.R.T.S. Connection

Due Date: 2026-07-29T21:00:00.000Z
To serve families who have special needs children under the age of 36 months. Families who were regional center clients with children under the age of three were invited to a retreat in Tehachapi. After the retreat, we started having monthly meetings in our homes. We have always been a parent founded and parent driven organization. We started as volunteers. With the support of the Kern Regional Center, the Bakersfield City School District, the Kern County Superintendent of Schools, and the Kern County Consortium SELPA, we started in a small room with one paid staff member. As the years went on we slowly gained more part-time (parent) staff and more office space. We continue to received funding from DDS. Volunteer Opportunities H.E.A.R.T.S. Connection has numerous ways for you to volunteer, for example we need help with special events and fundraisers. Currently, we are in need of volunteers on Wednesday afternoons to cover the phones at the front desk for our weekly staff meetings.
