Sonoma County Coordinated Entry System (CES)

Coordinated Entry is now available for all individuals and families experiencing homelessness!

You may contact Coordinated Entry between Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm at:
(866) 542-5480

Overview

Coordinated Entry is a streamlined system for accessing housing, shelter, and services to end homelessness and is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for all Continuums of Care (CoC) as stated in 24 CFR 578.7 (a) (8) of the Continuum of Care Program Interim Rule.

HUD requires each CoC to establish and operate a "centralized or coordinated assessment system" (referred to as "coordinated entry" or "coordinated entry process") with the goal of increasing the efficiency of local crisis response systems and improving fairness and ease of access to resources, including mainstream resources. Both the CoC and ESG Program interim rules require use of the CoC’s coordinated entry process, provided that it meets HUD requirements. Coordinated entry processes are intended to help communities prioritize people who are most in need of assistance. They also provide information to CoCs and other stakeholders about service needs and gaps to help communities strategically allocate their current resources and identify the need for additional resources.

Coordinated Entry in Sonoma County follows a Housing First approach for all participating projects and prioritizes individuals and families for permanent supportive housing for those with the highest vulnerability and needs.

In January 2017, HUD clarified additional requirements for a Continuum of Care Coordinated Entry System (CES). The deadline for compliance is January 23, 2018.
