with specific vulnerability index Referrals to appropriate program made immediately at time of screening CE Working for the MCoC Veteran Committee Post Coordinated Entry Veterans no longer bouncing between programs Veteran providers meet weekly to discuss new or difficult cases Most vulnerable veterans have quick access to

Permanent Supported Housing Programs Less vulnerable veterans have quick access to Rapid ReHousing Programs Transitional housing available with limited waitlists The MCoC CE 5 Step Process Step 1: ACCESS Access Points: Individuals experiencing homelessness, or who are at risk of homelessness, can easily access the MCoC CES by calling 211, showing up at their

local Emergency Shelter, or engaging with a PATH or other local outreach provider .
