Access Points for Everyone

Regional Access Points (RAPs) are the primary entry points for CEA. These entry points are resource centers where households experiencing homelessness can get help finding housing and other resources. Individuals and families facing homelessness may call ahead to schedule an appointment. New appointments times are released each week.


To schedule an appointment for an assessment, households may call 211 .

Regional Access Points have limited walk-in hours available. Clicking the drop down arrow for each RAP below will list the walk-in hours available for that location. Walk- in appointments are first come first served.
