Coordinated Entry Access Point

Coordinated entry is an important process through which people experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness can access the crisis response system in a streamlined way, have their strengths and needs quickly assessed, and quickly connect to appropriate, tailored housing and mainstream services within the community or designated region. When possible, the assessment provides the ability for households to gain access to the best options to address their needs, incorporating participants’ choice, rather than being evaluated for a single program within the system. The most intensive interventions are prioritized for those with the highest needs.

There are four local access points to the coordinated entry system, including DOVE Center, where assessment, information and referrals, and other resources are provided to the person seeking housing. Please call 435-628-1204 to schedule an appointment with a case manager.
