The Buena Park Navigation Center will be a transitional, temporary homeless shelter facility. The City has owned the site for over 40 years. Currently, the 2.14-acre site has a municipal water well towards the back and storage and a fire training tower towards the front. An approximate 25,500 square-foot portion towards the front of the site will serve as a transitional shelter, initially offering 150 beds in addition to some office, class, medical, outdoor and meeting spaces.
The facility will serve as transitional housing for those living on the streets in Buena Park and provide a stable setting with healthcare and other services. The long-term goal is to provide clients with the resources they need to permanently transition off the streets
