Support Fremont's Temporary Housing Navigation Center

As a Compassionate City, we invite you to be part of the solution and join us in creating Fremont’s first Housing Navigation Center. 

As part of the City of Fremont’s strategic approach to addressing the growing homeless crisis, the City is opening a temporary Housing Navigation Center (HNC). The HNC is an innovative approach to help those experiencing homelessness find housing while providing a clean, safe, and calm environment so participants can focus on finding stable, permanent housing. The HNC will be located behind City Hall and is anticipated to open in mid-2020.
