Coordination is key.

The Home Again West Texas coordinated entry system is a network of local service providers cooperating to ensure that people in need of housing are quickly identified, assessed and connected to the appropriate agencies.

The idea is to streamline the process of serving people in need of housing by referring them to the right agency the first time.  Otherwise, a person could be sent to multiple different agencies in multiple locations, and they might give up before finally reaching the agency that can best meet their needs.

Specific local organizations have been designated as the coordinated entry points, based on their ability to connect people to housing.
