The new beds, which are now open, are part of Mayor Breed’s efforts to add 1,000 new shelter beds by the end of 2020
San Francisco, CA — Mayor London N. Breed today announced the opening of 20 new beds at the Civic Center Navigation Center, which brings the total number of Navigation Center beds at Civic Center to 113. The new beds will be used to address homelessness in the area, with a particular emphasis for people at the cross-section of homelessness, mental illness, and substance use disorder.
Mayor Breed is committed to dramatically expanding shelters and Navigation Centers to provide a safe place for people to be off the street and be connected with long-term services. In October 2018, she announced a goal of opening 1,000 new shelter beds by the end of 2020. With the expansion of Civic Center Navigation Center, Mayor Breed has added 366 new shelter beds toward the 1,000 bed goal. There are an additional 224 beds under construction, and 200 beds in the pipeline.
