Homeless Navigation Centers

A Sprung Navigation Center is a homeless community resource concept designed by city planners across North America. As a complement to the “Housing First” model, a Sprung Navigation Center becomes the vital bridge between life on the streets and an affordable housing unit. Delivered and erected in as little as eight weeks, a Navigation Center allows cities to provide safe and secure accommodations as well as basic life services; bathrooms, showers, laundry, counseling and medical care. Some of the cities and organizations Sprung has worked with include The City of San Diego, Leeward Coast, Father Joes, The City of San Francisco, Fresno Rescue Mission and the City of Toronto.

People experiencing homelessness can now be placed into the system and given the help they need while preparing them for their transition to longer term affordable housing.

With low construction costs, limited foundation requirements, and the ability to deliver and build quicker than conventional building types, Sprung provides an ideal solution for communities in need of Navigation Centers. Sprung’s bright, clear-span interiors provide permanent or temporary shelter structures with a natural and bright living environment, while an energy-efficient insulation package means a comfortable interior and lower overall operating costs. The sophisticated interior of a Sprung structure can accommodate separate rooms and communal areas allowing for safer and more comfortable spaces within homeless facilities.
