A Little Alcove: San Francisco Navigation Center is a short film about a pioneering, transitional housing concept for the homeless in San Francisco. We followed one of the residents, Fred Vickers, around to hear his story and spoke with the project’s architects and designers to learn about what influenced them and why this project is so important to the City. The Navigation Center is designed to serve San Francisco’s highly vulnerable and long-term homeless residents who are often afraid of approaching traditional shelters and services. The centers provide room and board while case managers work intensively to connect them to jobs, public benefits, health services and permanent housing opportunities.
