WHAT IS COORDINATED
ENTRY?

Coordinated Entry is a process designed to ensure all experiencing homelessness have fair and equal access to the community’s resources; are quickly identified, assessed, and rapidly served with the most appropriate intervention.

HOW DOES COORDINATED
ENTRY WORK?

Households will be immediately assessed for need and the appropriate housing intervention to end their homelessness.
Navigators work with households to obtain the necessary documentation to enter housing, facilitate referrals to
housing providers, and advocate on behalf of the household. Households are connected to housing providers as
openings become available and assisted until housing is secured. The goal is to move families from homelessness to
housing in 60 days.
