San Francisco Adult Coordinated Entry System

 

COORDINATED ENTRY (CE) is a key component of the Homelessness Response System (HRS) that treats homelessness as an emergency to be responded to quickly and effectively. CE is a consistent, community wide intake process to match people experiencing homelessness to available housing focused community resources, that are the best fit for their situation. It includes a clear set of entry points, a standardized method to assess and prioritize people needing assistance, and a streamlined process for rapidly connecting people to a solution to their homelessness.

ECS COORDINATED ENTRY ACCESS POINTS perform a variety of activities that assist adults who are experiencing homelessness.

Access Point staff provide eligibility assessments to verify qualification for services; Problem-Solving to help San Francisco adults quickly exit the Homeless Response System, housing assessment to prioritize clients for housing based on living situation and vulnerabilities, and matching to determine eligibility for available housing opportunities and referral to a potential housing opportunity based on eligibility and assessment results.

Access Points are found at 123 10th Street and 2111 Jennings Street @ Van Dyke (United Council), with more to come.
