Coordinated Entry is a streamlined system that provides quick access to individuals and families seeking assistance through a coordinated referral and housing placement process. Households are assessed using a standard and objective tool that identifies their vulnerability and barriers to housing. Those who are assessed as having the highest vulnerability and housing barriers will be prioritized for access to available housing programs as vacancies occur.
Partners for HOME’s goal is to ensure that people who need assistance the most can receive it in a timely manner by providing access points across metro Atlanta. Individuals will be assessed and prioritized based on vulnerability and severity of service needs.
If you have any questions on Coordinated Entry, please feel free to contact our Coordinated Entry Project Manager, Jasmine Cunningham at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coordinated Access Point (CAP) Location Types:
First come, first serve basis.
Mobile assessments are performed by local PATH teams. If a client needs PATH services, we can refer them directly to a PATH team. Each client that is seen by a PATH worker or at our stationary CAP, are assessed using the VI-SPDAT.
Please see the full list of Coordinated Access Points here.
PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING BEDS AND RAPID REHOUSING
Currently, we are prioritizing our permanent supportive housing beds for those clients that have been assessed through Coordinated Entry and are chronically homeless. We have also implemented coordinated entry with clients who are in need of rapid rehousing. Please see an assessor at one of our CAP locations.
