Coordinated Entry for Youth

Coordinated Entry for Youth 


The Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing has launched Coordinated Entry for Youth and its community Access Points. Access Points are localized community gateways into San Francisco’s Homelessness Response System, which is the overall system of programs and housing opportunities for youth ages 18-24 experiencing homelessness.


The non-profit service providers for Coordinated Entry for Youth is operated by two leads, Larkin Street Youth Services and Huckleberry Youth, and in partnership with Homeless Youth Alliance, LYRIC, The SF LGBT Center, 3rd Street Youth Center and Clinic. Access Points are designed to provide access, determine eligibility, conduct problem solving and assessments, and perform housing referrals for San Francisco youth experiencing homelessness.


Families with children are served via Family Coordinated Entry
