Coordinated Entry

The primary role of the Coordinated Entry Committee is to provide oversight and review to the Coordinated Entry System for households experiencing homelessness to be served by both temporary and permanent housing, according to eligibility and service standards of the community.

Purpose Statement: To ensure our community experiences equitable access to housing resources, the committee will develop, evaluate and continually improve our coordinated entry system.
