Affordable housing and homelessness is a crisis in King County. Data collected in the 2015 One Night Count showed that over 10,000 people experienced homelessness on any given day. Of those, nearly 40 percent were living and sleeping outside. Approximately 60 percent were living in emergency shelters, motels, or transitional housing -- awaiting a chance for stable housing. 

Understanding the urgency of safe and stable housing for people experiencing a housing crisis, All Home (formerly the Committee to End Homelessness) have worked together to develop a coordinated way where people experiencing homelessness can get help finding and keeping housing. This coordinated system is called Coordinated Entry for All (CEA).  

The goal of CEA is to create a clear path and reduce barriers to housing for people experiencing homelessness. CEA uses a standardized assessment tool and coordinated referral and housing placement process to establish an equitable system.

The numbers See results of the Coordinated Entry quarterly evaluation, which provides an overview of the overall health and functioning of our Coordinated Entry for All housing placement system.
