Coordinated Entry is a key component of the Continuum’s crisis response system, which leverages the resources of local service providers to prevent and end homelessness. Designed to minimize barriers for persons in need of assistance, the Coordinated Entry process ensures the most intensive interventions are prioritized for those with the highest need, and that everyone has fair and equal access to housing and emergency services.

The St. Louis Coordinated Entry System provides critical services to meet the diverse needs of struggling families and individuals throughout the county. Created to streamline access to housing and services, Coordinated Entry connects people to resources and eliminates the burden of contacting multiple agencies when searching for vital assistance.
