Division Circle Navigation Center
in memory of Brian Quinn



St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Francisco proudly operates San Francisco’s Division Circle Navigation Center in memory of Brian Quinn with funding from The City’s Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing.

The Navigation Center provides 186 beds and extensive support services. The majority of our clients here experience chronic homelessness. Among the unique features of the Center are the capacity for couples to shelter together, bring in pets, and have clients possessions stored. 

SVDP-SF staff and partner agencies offer a wide spectrum of services that include case management, medical care, mental health and substance abuse screening, access to appropriate treatment, public benefits and employment resources, and most importantly, assistance to finding appropriate and available housing. The Center and staff work diligently to improve the health, safety, and self-sufficiency of people experiencing homelessness. 

We are honored to have been selected by the City of San Francisco to operate one of the Navigation Centers.  These facilities are part of a comprehensive continuum of services aimed at reducing and preventing homelessness in San Francisco.  More information about the city’s five year strategic framework can be found at here.
