Coordinated Entry For All (CEA)

Our members are working to transition 1,500 people experiencing homelessness into stable housing. One way our members do this is through Coordinated Entry For All (CEA). CEA is a standardized assessment tool to match people to housing resources. This system ensures that all people experiencing a housing crisis have fair and equal access to housing based on family’s vulnerability of needs. The coordinated entry processes helps communities prioritize assistance based on vulnerability and severity of service needs to ensure that people who need assistance the most can receive it in a timely manner.

You are eligible for CEA if you are:

  • Living and sleeping outside
  • Sleeping in a place not meant for human habitation
  • Staying in a shelter
  • Fleeing/attempting to flee domestic violence
  • Staying  in transitional housing or exiting an institution where you resided for up to 90 days and were in shelter or a place not meant for human habitation immediately prior to entering that institution or transitional housing
