Did you know?

Filling out the CES Housing Referral Tracking table is a critical part of the process for denying and accepting a referral.

HCC Referral Tracking Table


  • This table is a communication tool for all of us in the coordinated entry system.
  • Housing Providers must fill out the blue section of the Referral Tracking Table
  • Use the Referral Tracker for every referral
  • If there is no end date, that means the referral is still active.
  • Check out hmismn.org/coordinated-entry for awesome helpful videos and the written workflow instructions.


Data Dive: Youth Homelessness

Hennepin CoC has partnered with A Way Home America to help measure our progress on effectively ending youth homelessness in an easy-to-understand visual. Below is data on youth involved with the coordinated entry system in Hennepin County. This, and additional data, can be found at www.awayhomeamerica.org/community-dashboard/

AWHA Dashboard

In June, 36 youth were referred to housing through the coordinated entry system compared to the 42 youth that were added to our coordinated entry lists.

If you have further questions or comments in regard to the AWHA dashboards, please connect with Casey Schleisman at casey.schleisman@hennepin.us

Hennepin Singles & Youth CE Quarterly Collaboration Recap

On Monday July 9th, the CES leadership committee hosted the first Hennepin Singles & Youth Coordinated Entry Quarterly Collaboration meeting. This quarterly meeting is meant to be a chance to connect, discuss, and learn from collegues that are working in and around the coordinated entry system. Those in attendance, shared their experiences and worked through a variety of difficult scenarios. We were reminded that we are all Coordinated Entry (That's right, ALL of us), and we all have a role to play in helping our system grow, from infancy, into an efficient response to those experiencing housing instability.


Next Singles and Youth meeting: October 22nd, 2018 from 12:00 noon - 2:00 PM at Brookdale Library

Intervention Spotlight

Each month, the coordinated entry team will be shining a spotlight on different interventions that exist within the Coordinated Entry System. This month we will be highlighting one of the funding streams in Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH), LTH Housing Supports (formerly GRH LTH).

LTH Housing Support

Long-term homeless (LTH) supportive housing uses Housing Support funds to help people with a disabling condition and a history of homelessness to:

  • Move into appropriate housing, either scattered site or site based and provides funding to pay for housing expenses
  • Ensure that the home is furnished and that the person has all necessary items for maintaining their home
  • Have ongoing support that helps maintain stability and move towards greater independence

Housing Support is funded through the State of Minnesota. This intervention makes up the majority of the permanent supportive housing (PSH) units for the single adult coordinated entry system in Hennepin County.
