Better Bako is an online community dedicated to working together toward a better Bakersfield.  Our goal is to connect everyday volunteers to the numerous opportunities that exist to serve the community through local nonprofit organizations that are already making a difference.  We believe that the collaboration of residents who love their hometown has the potential to make a lasting impact on our city for future generations.  

Better Bako is made possible by a creative partnership with Wellspring Free Methodist Church.
