In its most basic form, coordinated entry is housing-focused and designed to quickly connect families experiencing a housing crisis with housing and housing-related resources as efficiently and effectively as possible. It standardizes the assessment process across local providers, and coordinates the referral for resources (such as prevention services, transitional housing, rapid re-housing, permanent supportive housing, emergency shelter, and case management) in a way that incorporates participant choice, and allows communities to prioritize scarce resources towards the most vulnerable community members.
