Health Center Role in Housing Innovations: Coordinated Entry

Building upon the original CSH Coordinated Entry publication, this paper will examine the current state of CE and the importance of health center involvement in the homeless response system. CE is a process that assesses, prioritizes and refers people experiencing homelessness with community housing resources. The challenges and responses to the COVID-19 pandemic re-emphasize the value of strong collaborations between health and housing sectors to prioritize resources and improve health outcomes. This publication will outline suggested steps for initiating or improving such collaborations and highlight examples of health centers that have successfully integrated CE into their outreach and efforts to address social determinants of health.
