Long Beach Atlantic Farms Bridge Housing Community

This is the first of its kind project in Long Beach that will help address the issues of homelessness in our city and propel those most in need of housing on a path towards permanent stability.

Tracy Chandler, Deputy City Manager of Long Beach

The City of Long Beach selected Griffin to assist in managing the planning of the Long Beach Year-Round Shelter. The 3-acre project site is located at 6845 Atlantic Avenue and included a renovation of an existing 1950s building into the City’s Year-Round Shelter.

In addition to housing four dormitories with accommodations for 125 individuals each night, the campus features intake, security, and COVID-19 health screenings. Spacious common areas including a warming kitchen, a dining hall, lounge, laundry facilities, gender specific and gender neutral restrooms and showers, case management and service connection offices, a family respite room for emergency overnight use, and several outdoor amenities including a dining area, dog run, and pet relief area, solar charging station, locations for people to store their belongings, and parking.

This campus is the City’s first year-round homeless shelter and provides wraparound services for those experiencing homelessness. The shelter provides 125 beds with separate quarters for men, women, families, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. This pet-friendly shelter includes limited storage and is open 24 hours to ensure adequate support services for displaced persons within the City.
