Upcoming 1515 South Van Ness Navigation Center Community Meeting
Dear Mission Neighbors:
Please join us on February 12 for a neighbor and community stakeholder meeting to discuss HSH’s plan to wind down operations at the South Van Ness Navigation Center (1515 South Van Ness). Feel free to forward this invite to other neighbors and community stakeholders that may be interested in learning more.
In partnership with Supervisor Hillary Ronen’s office, the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH) opened the 1515 South Van Ness Navigation Center in June 2017 on property owned by Lennar Multifamily Communities, LLC (LMC). LMC is planning to develop market rate housing on this site. The initial agreement with LMC allowed for Navigation Center operations to continue through the end of February 2018 when they planned to begin construction. Construction is slated to begin in June and HSH will continue navigation center operations on the site through May 31, 2018.
HSH is working closely with Supervisor Ronen and Public Works to open a replacement Navigation Center at 13th Street and South Van Ness. Guests on site will be transferred to the new site when the Navigation Center at 1515 South Van Ness closes, by May 31.
Operations at the replacement navigation center will be modeled on the best practices and lessons learned at the South Van Ness Navigation Center. Since opening in June 2017, the South Van Ness Navigation Center has brought 398 people in off of the streets and has reduced the number of tents in the Mission by more than 60%. Extending operations until a new Navigation Center opens will help us address ongoing encampment concerns in the neighborhood and throughout the district in a timely and effective manner.
