This year, we have been participating in Pierce County’s new system for helping those who are experiencing homelessness. There is a centralized resource, called Coordinated Entry (or Access Point for Housing), for all those seeking housing and support services. At Coordinated Entry, a family’s needs are assessed and they match each family to the best-fitting housing or support for their situation.
If you know anyone who is experiencing homelessness in Pierce County, they can call Coordinated Entry to be connected to the right program and services. The number for Coordinated Entry is (253) 682-3401.
