Coordinated Entry for Homeless Services

Coordinated Entry is a simpler way for people experiencing homelessness, or at imminent risk of homelessness, to get the help they need. Housing services are accessed through a single assessment which is completed at any local Community Access Point. Based on the assessment, homeless individuals and families most in need of assistance are placed on the community-wide priority list for housing assistance from which dozens of local programs accept referrals.

Coordinated Entry uses a fair, unbiased approach to prioritizing people for referral to housing services based on the severity of their needs and other resources. Households complete only one assessment to determine what services they may be eligible for.  This research-based assessment tool helps housing specialists identify each individual or family’s unique needs and resources so they can be connected to the help they need.

Coordinated Entry provides data to help our community better plan for housing needs. All assessments are centralized so we can better track requests for assistance, referrals, services provided and contributing factors to homelessness.

If you are in need of housing assistance, visit one of the Community Access Points listed below.
