Chicago Coordinated Entry System

Chicago's Coordinated Entry System serves as a front door to connect people facing homelessness to housing and supports in an accessible, equitable, transparent manner. This new way of doing business allows all partners in the Chicago Continuum of Care to collaborate to improve access and outcomes for people without permanent housing while delivering trauma informed services.

Coordinated Entry System Overview

Chicago’s vision for coordinated entry is a community response to ending homelessness that accounts for the diversity of needs of people and urgently responds to these needs with permanent housing solutions.
