WHAT IS COORDINATED
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
Coordinated Entry is the front door to all homeless services in our community. Households in crisis are immediately assessed for need and matched with the most 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.
Coordinated Entry Goals:
- 100% of CoC and ESF-funded housing programs will participate in Coordinated Entry
- 100% of Permanent Supportive Housing and Rapid Rehousing enrollments come through
- 90% of Coordinated Entry referrals to housing providers are accepted
- Length of time between housing referral and leasing is less than 60 days
These services provided by TCHC are made possible in part through a Community Development Block Grant form the city of Arlington through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
