Connecting individuals and families experiencing homelessness to community resources

Coordinated Entry

Coordinated Entry is a community-wide response effort to addressing homelessness. Using data and strategy program coordination, the system can help quickly identify, assess, and connect households in crisis to community resources to best address their unique needs. Waypoint serves as the designated lead agency for Coordinated Entry in Linn County, Benton County, and Jones County. Anyone experiencing a housing crisis can contact Waypoint to determine what services within the community can best meet their current needs.

For more information about Coordinated Entry and the Coordinated Systems Approach, visit the National Alliance to End Homelessness's website.

If you are experiencing a housing crisis, please call Waypoint's Shelter Service Line at 319.366.7999.
