GET TO KNOW: Central City Access Point

As you may know, Compass Family Services has been working diligently with the San Francisco Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH) to implement a new system of delivering services to clients known as Family Coordinated Entry.

What is Coordinated Entry?

“Coordinated Entry is the streamlined, standardized process that is the “front door” for connecting people experiencing homelessness to available community resources, including shelter or housing, based on a person’s living situation and vulnerability. The goal of Coordinated Entry is to make homelessness a rare, brief, and one-time occurrence.”

What is Compass’ role in implementing Family Coordinated Entry?

Compass operates the Central City Access Point (CCAP), one of two Access Points for families to receive services. At CCAP, families will be assessed for housing, shelter, clinical, childcare, and other needs. For more information on CCAP, check out Compass’ programs page.

Compass is proud and excited to operate the Central City Access Point, and we will continue to work with HSH to improve the Family Coordinated Entry system as we roll out its implementation!
