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.

Help Grow Fremont's Temporary Housing Navigation Center Garden

Support from the community will transform the Housing Navigation Center into an inviting and dignified place for our homeless neighbors to do the hard work of rebuilding their lives. You can help make the HNC successful with a monetary donation. 

The temporary Housing Navigation Center aims to be a welcoming and private environment for the participants and an integrated part of Fremont’s new Downtown. Landscaping and beautification will be a crucial element in achieving this goal. As a member of the compassionate Fremont community, you are invited to sponsor areas of the HNC garden. Sponsors will receive recognition for their support and a photo of the final garden.
