Coordinated Entry (CE) is a process for those within Snohomish County to access homelessness prevention and housing services, as well as connections and info about community programs to anyone in need. CE uses an assessment tool to get those in need connected to a navigator closest to their location. CE navigators are located throughout the county at various organizations. Catholic Community Services (1918 Everett Ave, Everett WA 98201) mainly serves the downtown Everett, South Marysville and Mukilteo areas.
Anyone in the Snohomish County area experiencing literal homelessness (in a vehicle, outside, in a shelter or somewhere not meant for human habitation) and those who are imminently homeless (will be losing their housing in 14 days or less) are eligible to access Coordinated Entry. CE is not an immediate solution to homelessness, but helps families and individuals to access services, information and housing wait lists that can only be accessed through CE (including the housing programs offered by Catholic Community Service in Snohomish County).
Persons who are eligible to work with a prevention or housing navigator will work with that navigator to make a plan for working their way out of their current housing crisis by accessing resources that may benefit them in the short term and long term, and by completing an action plan to work toward meeting unmet needs. The CE system and housing roster will be explained in detail by the navigator and they will help look at other options outside of CE for housing opportunities as well, as the wait list is long and cannot serve all those in need.
Navigation services are available to those with disabilities and language barriers and are accessible via public transportation.
To access Coordinated Entry and be assigned a navigator please contact 2-1-1 (or 800-223-8145) M-F, 8am-5pm. You can also access CE in person by going to the Carnegie Resource Center M-F, between the hours of 9am-4pm @ 3001 Oakes Ave, Everett WA 98201.
The Pregnant/Parenting Housing Program (PPH) is a Permanent Supportive Housing program for a specialized population of families. Our case managers focus on family reunification, substance use, and housing stability in addition to other areas of focus which our clients may identify needing assistance. Case management in this program includes housing search assistance and weekly home visits to address any needs in the client created housing stability plan. This program provides no rental assistance, as each participant is referred to the PPH program with either a project based voucher, or a Shelter Plus Care Voucher.
- Participants must be currently homeless with documented Chronic Homelessness
- Participants must have participated in a substance use treatment program within the last 12 months
- Participants must be either pregnant or parenting (or working towards reunification with child not currently in their custody)
How can I get referred?
All referrals for the PPH Program are done through Snohomish County Coordinated Entry. If you are literally homeless and in need of housing assistance, please call 2-1-1 to access Coordinated Entry.
Rapid Rehousing (RRH) is a short term intervention designed to help individuals and families exit homelessness and quickly return to permanent housing. Our case management focuses on resolving the practical and immediate barriers to obtaining and maintaining market rate housing as well as making connections to other services and community supports. RRH provides housing search assistance, short-term temporary financial assistance, as well as housing stability case management to assist our participants in maintaining their housing once program assistance has ended. All services are voluntary and housing stability plans are created in partnership with our clients. We are a housing first program, meaning that there are no preconditions that clients must meet before moving into housing. While clients do not need to have current income to be eligible for the RRH program, clients must work with their case manager to develop a plan for assuming responsibility for their rent.
Eligibility: Participants must be literally homeless before being enrolled in the program.
