Medical care can become quite costly – as such we do recommend you have health insurance coverage prior to traveling. Please do note that many hospitals and physicians may not provide patient care without proof of medical coverage.

You can dial 911 in most parts of California and immediately be connected with first responders. In remote areas where 911 may not be available, please dial 0 to be connected with an operator who will then connect you to emergency services.
While we don’t have tons of rules regarding lifestyle, years of working with people have taught us some practices we consider quite wise, holy & healthy. With this, we do not have co-ed housing available. While we understand this may be normal in some cultures, and may be needed in overseas missions environments, we do discourage this while at KDC. We ask that you honor us by respecting these values in this area. The exception to this would be couples who are in matrimony through a holy covenant.
Common medications, vitamins, pills, etc can be easily purchased at local pharmacies and convenience stores. Additionally there are numerous urgent care clinics and physicians available for checkups and prescriptions.
