Were you referred to Coordinated Entry (CE) by a Public Housing Authority?* Yes No Where are you living right now?* In a car or other vehicle Emergency shelter Domestic violence shelter On the street, in a park, or other place not meant for human habitation In a house/structure without adequate bathroom, kitchen, or utilities (water, electric, heat) Transitional housing program In a hotel that a charity/government paid for (no self pay) In a hotel paid for by myself, family, or friends ** Staying with family or friends ** Facing eviction (notice received, hearing scheduled) ** Are you currently fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence?* Yes No You are currently not eligible for this program. Because our program is funded in-part by federal HUD grants, we are only able to accept those who are “Literally Homeless” (living in a vehicle, shelter program, park, street, or other place not meant for human habitation), or those who are fleeing domestic violence. If your situation changes, please apply at that time. You may want to consider applying for our Transitional Housing program, which has more flexibility on what qualifies as homeless. Also, look through our list of Emergency Resources for other agencies which may have services that better align with your immediate needs. Keep in mind that our program is not an emergency shelter and our programs do have waiting lists. These service agencies can help you with safety planning.
