Remote Coordinated Entry: Using tools and partnerships to create an innovative solution
Communities face unexpected barriers when implementing coordinated entry and working towards ending homelessness. In Palm Beach County it was a “no walk-up” policy. Since starting Coordinated Entry in 2012, the community replaced subjectivity, side doors and inefficiencies with assessments, prioritization and unified systems. This session will present methods used for remote assessment, shelter and housing prioritization, and building a system in which clients and providers understand housing first culture.
