Nearly a year to the day after breaking ground, San Mateo County leaders gathered in Redwood City to celebrate the completion of the county’s new 240-unit navigation center, a housing complex meant to offer wraparound services to some of the area’s most vulnerable residents.
“We could not be more proud of the launch of this navigation center,” said Dave Pine, president of the Board of Supervisors, during a ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday. “Here at the navigation center we offer hope, that’s the most important, we offer hope in giving those who are willing a place to call home and a chance to get back on their feet.”
In about a month, LifeMoves, the nonprofit tapped to run the new navigation center, will begin moving residents into the site. Once moved in, residents will have access to dental and medical care, behavioral health care like mental health and substance use disorder services, job readiness and other services.
Amenities will also include onsite laundry, a community garden, 140 bicycle parking spaces, WiFi, a barbecue area, a dog run, pet-friendly policies and animal care classes, a basketball court and multiple resting areas.
Of the units, 168 will have private bathrooms. Residents in the other 72 units will have access to a communal bathroom. The site will also have a communal electric commercial kitchen and dining space and community hall for on-site counseling and other services. Read more…
