Our Mission

The Child Guidance Guild was founded in 1958 by a group of community volunteers dedicated to raising funds in support of the Henrietta Weill Memorial Child Guidance Clinic, a private non-profit mental health agency for children and families in Kern County since 1946.



As an auxiliary of the Henrietta Weill Child Guidance Clinic, The Guild's primary objectives are to assist and support the treatment center and to foster community interest in the services and needs of the Clinic.


With over 200 active and sustaining members, the Guild has conducted many activities over the years with all proceeds and gratuities from Guild House events going to support the Clinic.  The Guild House has donated over $2.1 million dollars to the Clinic over the years.  We invite you to join us in our mission and become a volunteer of the Guild House of Bakersfield.
