Community Planning for Coordinated Entry Process

A coordinated response to ending homelessness requires that assistance be allocated as effectively as possible and that it be easily accessible no matter where or how people present. Coordinated entry processes help communities prioritize assistance based on vulnerability and severity of service needs to ensure that people who need assistance the most can receive it in a timely manner. Coordinated entry processes also provide information about service needs and gaps to help communities plan their assistance and identify needed resources.
