The Visalia Navigation Center is a Low Barrier Navigation Center (LBNC) project which includes the construction of an approximately 15,000-20,000 SF facility including spaces to accommodate: a 100-bed emergency housing shelter with supporting elements, various office spaces for supportive services, on-site staff and co-location of the Kings/Tulare Homeless Alliance, and exterior amenities for day-use. The 100-bed emergency shelter space may be separated as follows: two group dormitory-type spaces, one for men and another for women, to be furnished with cots and/or bunk beds, and five to 10 private rooms to accommodate families and/or seniors experiencing homelessness. The facility will also include a large central area for meetings and group gatherings, dining room, commercial kitchen, restrooms and shared shower facilities, a separate restroom and shower/bathroom to be used by family and/or senior clients, client and facility laundry areas, space for on-site staff workstations or offices, office space for co-located partners, and conference rooms. Exterior amenities will include a playground area, day-use area with green space, and animal kennel space.
