New Rosecrans Shelter for San Diegans Experiencing Homelessness Opens Monday
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.
“The staff will connect people to self-sufficiency services, job opportunities and eventually a place to call home. These are the benefits of going to a shelter,” he said.
