BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The board of supervisors voted unanimously to approve a 3-year deal on Tuesday to have Community Action Partnership of Kern run the county's new low-barrier homeless shelter.
Officials said the navigation center will open with 50 beds and house with a total of 150 once it's complete.
Construction is reportedly on schedule with two new structures.
It will cost a little more than 2 million dollars a year to run the complex.
The shelter will provide beds, meals, pet care, security and property storage along with social services.
