Coordinated Entry


The housing system can feel like a maze for individuals experiencing homelessness. Trying to determine who to talk to, how to get there, and where to begin can be confusing and overwhelming. Coordinated Entry for Individuals and Families establishes a system where housing placement isn't a matter of talking to the right case manager, at the right agency, at the right time.

Instead, Coordinated Entry represents standardized access and assessment for all individuals and families, as well as a coordinated referral and housing placement process to ensure that people experiencing homelessness receive appropriate assistance with both immediate and long-term housing and service needs. The entire Coordinated Entry process uses a “client centered” approach, while doing so through a standardized process from initial engagement to successful housing placement.

In a data-driven and evidence-informed manner, providers across Pinellas County are establishing strategic partnerships to better serve our fellow community members experiencing homelessness.

The Coordinated Entry System Navigators will be at the locations listed below at the times and dates indicated.
