Palm Beach County will soon have a new resource for the homeless who need shelter and support.
A new 20,000-square-foot center in Palm Springs will have 70 beds, a sheriff’s substation, health care services, laundry facilities, a pantry and community room to serve the population. Completion is expected in 14 months.
The county has budgeted $16 million for the project, partially funded through a county sales tax. The Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County is also seeking donors for the project, according to WPBF.
Coming soon: 17 cottage homes for homeless families, Palm Beach Mayor Robert Weinroth said.
