ARE YOU EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS?
Are you sleeping in emergency shelter, in public areas, or in another place that is not permanent or safe? Consider requesting a coordinated entry interview with one of Denton County's network on nonprofits operating as "front doors" to homelessness.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
- Agency staff will discuss your options based on your unique situation.
- If your case cannot be rapidly resolved, you will be assessed and placed on a list to for individuals and families in need of housing supports. Please be advised that wait times for these services are dependent on available funding. A coordinated entry interview is not a guarantee of housing support services.
- Staff will attempt to refer you to community resources as needed, including but not limited to emergency shelters, food pantries, employment assistance, and mental health services.
KEEP IN MIND
The coordinated entry process does not guarantee assistance and does not mean there are new resources available. We are working diligently with many households to end their homelessness, but resources are limited. It is possible and likely that programs you are interested in will not have any current openings, and there is no way to tell when a program may be able to offer assistance.
If you are a community member wanting to connect a person or household that is living unsheltered (in an encampment, in the woods, in a tent, etc.) please complete the below Street Outreach connection form so the Denton Homeless Outreach Team can meet that household where they are at with resources and case management services.
