Coordinated Entry Access Point

Coordinated Entry is the process through which people who are experiencing, or are at risk of experiencing, homelessness can access a crisis response system in a streamlined way, have strengths and needs quickly assessed, and be connected in a timely manner to appropriate and tailored housing and community services. DOVE Center is one of four Coordinated Entry Access Points in Washington County.

The intersection of domestic violence and homelessness affects many survivors, and the Coordinated Entry process helps prevent victims from returning to abusers in order to avoid homelessness.
