Article by Ken Carlson, Modesto Bee

The Center for Human Services will open a navigation center in Modesto to provide shelter, temporary housing and services for teenagers and young adults, 13 to 24 years old, who are homeless, in a crisis or don’t have stable housing.

The Youth Navigation Center has been under construction next to the Center for Human Services main office at 2000 W. Briggsmore Ave. The shelter and drop-in center will be housed in the former Roller King building, once a hangout for youth dating to perhaps more innocent times in Modesto.
