  • Homeless individuals being sent to or walking into the hub will receive a return date to complete their assessment.

  • The assessment determines what type of housing is most appropriate for the client.

  • Not all clients referred to the hub for housing are eligible for Transitional Housing, Permanent Supportive Housing, and Rapid Rehousing.

  • Local ESG funded Emergency Shelters do not participate in CES. (You must contact the shelter for intake and admission.

  • Individuals who have received a community housing assessment and are deemed to be appropriate for a housing referral may not receive housing immediately or from the provider who referred them. Housing is based on availability and  also on client choice.

 

HOW TO MAKE A REFERRAL TO THE HUB

  • Housing programs using CES will use HMIS system for referral.  All other housing providers should use their current system of referral or guide the client to their local HUB for assistance.

  • All populations needing housing assistance should contact the HUB in their county for assistance with intake assessment and referral.
