Homeless Services (pg 42)- CCCIL can assist you by enrolling you into Coordinated Entry. Coordinated entry is a consistent, community-wide process to match people experiencing homelessness to community resources that are the best fit for their situation. In a community using coordinated entry, homeless individuals and families complete a standard triage assessment survey that identifies the best type of intervention for that household

The registry’s main purpose is to provide affordable, reliable, experienced personal assistants to older adults and persons with disabilities to enable them to live independently. Included are aides with many years of experience but no formal training, personal homecare workers, certified nurse assistants, LVN’s, medical assistants, RN’s, etc.
