Coordinated Entry System (CES)

Referred to as the “match.com” of homeless services, the Coordinated Entry System (CES) streamlines the process of finding housing for those who are chronically homeless — with the goal of housing the most vulnerable people first.

In 2014, Union Station Homeless Services was selected by the United Way of Greater Los Angeles as a Lead Agency to manage the efforts of 40+ social services agencies throughout the San Gabriel Valley. In our collaborative and coordinated efforts to end homelessness in our region, we will assess, assist and assign people to vital housing resources. Our services, including street outreach, housing navigation and care coordination, help people experiencing chronic homelessness to round up their documents, find permanent homes, and stay housed for good.

This program is part of a national effort to end chronic, veteran and family homelessness by 2016.
