Coordinated Entry


CE diagram.png

Coordinated entry assures that people experiencing homelessness, or who are at risk of homelessness, can access housing and services in a streamlined way. It includes a strengths-based assessment and elevates the household's preferences regarding where they want to live / how they want to live. Households with the highest needs are prioritized for housing. Learn more about how it works.

Our Coordinated Entry System (CES) includes a hotline for anyone who needs shelter or housing!

HUD Policy Brief about Coordinated Entry

HUD has provided guidance about Coordinated Entry Systems, including CoC requirements, assessment standards, and the benefits of a client-centered approach to housing.




Coordinated Entry Eligibility Forms

Housing placement may depend on documented eligibility based on chronic homeless status, veteran status, disability status, and homeless history. More information about these forms is available at our Program Eligibility Page.



Case Conference Meetings

The CoC accelerates 'best fit' housing matches through local case conferencing. These meetings are attended by outreach workers, homeless services providers, and housing providers. They include a review of the CoCs prioritized list of households who need housing, and provide a venue for discussing the household's housing preferences along with their assessment results and service needs.


The Case Conference meeting schedule can be viewed at the CoCs Calendar.
