Coordinated Entry info for youth in each Metro area county
Coordinated Entry is the NEW system for accessing supportive housing resources in the Metro area. The Coordinated Entry initiative supports youth ages 16-24 in matching their housing needs with the appropriate housing resources.
What you need to do:
- Step 1 – Make an appointment with a Coordinated Entry assessor in your area, and they will conduct a screening and assessment with you to determine if you are eligible for supportive housing.
- Step 2 – If you qualify, your name and housing assessment information will be added to your county’s Housing Priority List.
- Step 3 – Stay in touch with your assessor regularly while you are waiting, to let them know if your contact information or living situation changes. Also continue to look for housing on your own, as program placement through Coordinated Entry is not guaranteed.
- Step 4 – When you are notified by a housing program that they have an opening for you, you will meet with them to be sure that it’s a good match for you!
