The proposed Huntington Beach Navigation Center ("Center") is a homeless shelter facility at 15311 Pipeline Lane. The vacant 11,200 square-foot industrial building would provide approximately 75 to 90 beds. We can offer more beds at this location than the previous site on Research Drive because of the increased square footage, while meeting general intent of the Court.
The proposed facility will provide emergency beds and navigation services according to the needs and capabilities of each homeless individual. The Center will provide a stable setting for Case Managers to interview and oversee the residents in order to facilitate connections with employment, housing providers, mental health services and address other impediments to stable housing. Case Managers will be employed by an experienced non-profit in shelter management. The long-term goal is to provide clients with the resources they need to permanently transition off the streets.
