Coordinated Entry System
Coordinated Entry System (CES) streamlines the process of finding housing for those individuals, families, and youth who are homeless with the goal of housing the most vulnerable people first.
Our region’s CES is structured to comply with HUD requirements including multiple points of access and respect for participant’s privacy.
HMIS is an internet-based database that is used by homeless service organizations across Central Florida to record and store client-level information about the numbers, characteristics and needs of homeless persons and those at risk of homelessness. HMIS is guided by data standards created by HUD.
The only true solution to homelessness is permanent housing. Thus, landlords are one of the most important partners in the CoC’s homeless service system. Landlord services staff work with landlords to identify available units for families, chronically homeless individuals, survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking, unaccompanied youth and veterans.
