2-1-1 Coordinated Entry is a community’s housing crisis response system for people who are experiencing or at-risk for homelessness. It is an effective process for helping people find the housing and services they need to end their housing crisis as quickly and successfully as possible.

By using a standardized assessment tool and referral process, families and individuals are prioritized for appropriate housing and services based on vulnerability and servility of need.
