The WI BOS Coordinated Entry System is a critical component in our effort to end homelessness in the WI BOSCOC. The goal of the WI BOS Coordinated Entry System is that the process is easy for people to access, that it identifies and assesses their needs, and makes prioritization decisions based upon needs. Assistance should be allocated as effectively as possible and it should be easily accessible no matter where or how people present.
The WI BOS Coordinated Entry System helps communities prioritize assistance based on vulnerability and severity of service needs to ensure that people who need assistance the most can receive it in a timely manner. The WI BOS Coordinated Entry System will also provide information about service needs and gaps to help communities plan their assistance and identify needed resources.
