Rapid Housing: Coordinated Entry Access Points
In response to COVID-19, housing assessments are being conducted by phone only at most Access Points. Assessments are currently available at the locations/phone numbers and times lists below. What to expect when completing a Coordinated Entry assessment by phone:
1) You may be asked to make an appointment for an assessor to give you a call back or forwarded to voicemail. If this happens, try calling another Access Point or wait for a return call from the Access Point with which you left a message. They will return your call within 1 business day.
2) You may be referred to a different agency or phone number on this list.
3) You will be read a release of information that you normally would sign in person but will be only asked if you agree to it.
4) You will be asked to complete a brief health screening to assess need for isolation as a result of COVID-19.
5) The housing assessment process will take about 30 minutes.
