Housing Navigation Center
Lotus Care House is the first Housing Navigation Center in the Kansas City metropolitan area.
A Housing Navigation Center is a housing-focused alternative to emergency shelter. Whereas emergency shelters focus on single-stay beds for individuals needing immediate relief from sleeping on the streets, a Navigation Center like Lotus Care House is focused on helping individuals on their journey to permanent housing.
Through a collaboration with the Greater Kansas City Coalition to End Homelessness, the Lotus Care House Navigation Center focuses on providing houseless individuals with a short-term stay, coupled with housing-focused skills development and resource connections targeted at resolving their current episode of homelessness.
