What We Do
Coordinated entry ensures that people experiencing or at risk of homelessness can have fair and equal access to housing resources. First, an assessment is coordinated with a local organization. Then based on the need, vulnerability, and availability of resources people are connected to the best resources during bi-weekly confidential case conferencing meetings.
We participate in the Missouri Balance of State Continuum of Care (Mo BoS CoC) Region 5 Coordinated Entry initiative.
This program is designed to alleviate some of the property owners/landlords, and managers' financial risks in leasing to vulnerable tenants using housing vouchers. Currently, a $500 cash incentive is open to any property owner taking a housing voucher and $1,000 will be held for repairs upon the tenant's moving out.
Project Homeless Connect is a bi-annual event that provides a one-stop shop for people experiencing homelessness to access community services.
