Up to 150 San Diegans experiencing homelessness will be able to move into the Rosecrans Shelter when it officially opens Monday, following a tour by city and county leaders of the facility Friday.

 

The Lucky Duck Foundation — which donated the use of the shelter structure and covered construction costs — took San Diego County Supervisor Chair Nathan Fletcher, San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria and other officials through the new shelter offering on-site behavioral health services.

 

“This new Rosecrans Shelter is a stepping stone for people living on our streets; it creates new opportunities for a better life,” Fletcher said. “Being a guest at this shelter provides a better way to manage your mental health and the chance to beat addiction.
