3 County Continuum of Care - Coordinated Entry

What is Coordinated Entry? (HUD definition)

Coordinated entry is a new process through which people experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, homelessness can access services in a streamlined way, have their strengths and needs assessed, and more quickly connect to appropriate, tailored housing and mainstream services within the community. Standardized assessment forms provide the ability for households to gain access to more options, incorporating participants’ choice, rather than being evaluated for a single program within the system. The most intensive interventions are prioritized for those with the highest needs.  How does it work?

Coordinated Entry 3-County Hotline 1-888-413-WMAS (9627).
