Buena Park Navigation Center opens

Partner organizations and members of the community were invited Monday, June 29 to celebrate the grand opening of the Buena Park Navigation Center at 6494 Caballero Blvd.

The 149-bed facility, set to help transition homeless neighbors off the street and into temporary housing, will begin accepting residents this week. Residents will arrive through referrals from non-profit partners and north Orange County Police Department homeless liaison officers.

Construction on the Buena Park Navigation Center began just a year ago. The facility was built with repurposed shipping containers.

The facility will serve as a temporary homeless shelter for adults. The facility has 90 beds for men, 49 beds for women and 10 beds for couples. Medical offices, common areas, work stations, kitchen, a dog run, laundry room, and more make up the over 15,000 square foot facility. The center’s operating model will offer round-the-clock security, services, and resources.

Partnerships between the City of Buena Park, the other North Orange County cities, the County of Orange, and countless other community organizations made this Buena Park Navigation Center possible.
