Coordinated Entry

Are you an adult, (18 or older), experiencing homelessness in Boulder County?

If you need a safe place to sleep and access to meals, showers, and basic support services, your first step to receiving services from Boulder County or the cities of Boulder or Longmont is to call Coordinated Entry. This is a required step for anyone seeking homeless-related services!

What happens at Coordinated Entry?

You will meet with a staff person and complete a brief assessment. Based on the information gathered through the assessment you will be referred to the local service provider that can best support your needs. CE is available in both Boulder and Longmont. Services include shelter, help identifying housing options, basic-needs services, case management, and more.

* Note: You must call at least 30 minutes before they close, at either location, to have time to complete the assessment.
