VICTORVILLE – The City of Victorville is hosting an open house, December 8, for a new $28 million Wellness Center facility for the homeless. 

The city says the center is a key component in their strategy to reduce homelessness in Victorville.   

Housing operations at the center are expected to begin in the coming weeks before the holidays and will continue to ramp up into the month of January.

One-of-a Kind Center

Victorville’s Wellness Center will be the first low-barrier, non-congregate emergency shelter to offer interim housing. The center will also offer wraparound support services with a medical and recuperative care clinic on-site. 

The non-congregate – or private living space design of the modular housing units will offer 110 separate units with a minimum capacity of 170 beds. 

The center will include community spaces, a dog kennel, community garden, and recreational sports courts.  Altogether, the housing units and support service buildings comprise 25,920-square-feet of new construction on 4.5 acres of city-owned land.
