• Description

These slides are from our 2016 national conference, A Nation That Works: What's It Going to Take? Coordinated entry is expanding as a common practice among communities looking to quickly and efficiently connect individuals experiencing homelessness to housing interventions that meet their needs. As the first contact point with the homeless services system, coordinated entry represents a critical time period and prime opportunity to more fully connect families to vital resources including income benefits and employment. The session will highlight the innovative approaches taken by three major cities to build employment and income referral pathways into their existing coordinated entry systems. Join us for a presentation on the goals, process and implementation of weaving employment and income support pathways into the coordinated entry systems of Chicago, Seattle, and Houston.
