Regional Access Points (RAP) are the front door to Coordinated Entry for All (CEA) in Central Seattle and East King County (Bellevue). RAPs connect unhoused individuals to resources including housing, employment, benefits, and basic needs. Community members connect with us through collaborations with community organizations such as food banks, libraries, and day centers. With a strong foundation in Trauma-Informed Care and Motivational Interviewing, we explore all possible housing options with single adults, veterans, families, and youth and young adults.
Services Offered Include:
- Information on: Best Starts for Kids, CReW, shelters, food banks, employment navigators, ORCA Lift, etc.
- Shelter Diversion: We will work with you to identify all of your housing options. If you are eligible, diversion funding can help pay for part of move in costs to rent a new apartment. Diversion funding can also help pay for a ticket to travel somewhere that you can live for at least 90 days, or help pay for part of a debt that is keeping you from getting approved to rent. There are limits to how much we can spend on each person or family and we can only make a one-time payment.
Please note: Due to high demand, we cannot accommodate all households that walk-in without an appointment.
