Delays & Cost Overruns Continue As Proposed Homeless Center Set For Summer 2024 Opening

The last 7 and a half million dollars is in place to complete renovation of a Homeless Navigation Center in Palm Springs. 

The Riverside County Board of Supervisors has approved that final chunk of funding, putting the Center on track to open this summer.

The Homeless Navigation Center will provide 80 interim housing units with full wrap-around services. The three‑building campus located at 3589 McCarthy Road on the north side of  Palm Springs.  Renovations have been slow that anticipated.

So where did the County Supervisors get 7 and a half million dollars?  From IEHP, the Inland Empire Health Plan.

So far, more than  $40 million has been spent on that Homeless Navigation Center in Palm Springs. $18 million from the County, $8 million from the City of Palm Springs, and a Homekey Program award of $16 million from the State of California.

The Palm Springs Homeless Navigation Center  will be highlighted at an upcoming symposium on February 1st  hosted by  Supervisor V Manuel Perez, the Riverside County Housing and Workforce Solutions Department and Coachella Valley cities.

They will focus on boosting  housing construction throughout the Coachella Valley. 

The symposium will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission in Indio.
