Coordinated Entry for All
Housing, Homelessness and Community Development Division
The purpose of Coordinated Entry for All (CEA) is to ensure that all households experiencing homelessness have equitable access to housing resource connections to resolve their housing crisis.
The system aims to work with households to understand their strengths and needs, provide a tailored assessment process, and progressively engage households to connect to the housing and homeless assistance that will best support them. CEA incorporates the principles of a system-wide housing first approach and prioritizes those with highest service needs through a Dynamic Prioritization model.
Dynamic Prioritization is a revised coordinated entry approach which uses population-specific prioritization criteria (i.e., assessment result, unsheltered status, length of time homeless) to identify the most vulnerable households and utilizes a case conferencing model to connect prioritized households to housing based on the anticipated number of available housing resources over the next 60 days.
