Tenant applications, Coordinated Entry, referrals and wait list
Applicants for supportive housing usually will come through the coordinated entry process, except those programs that are exempt and keep their own waiting list. After receiving referrals from Coordinated Entry, the property manager will conduct the screening and select applicants according to the tenant selection criteria for the housing units. Some programs also receive specific referrals from other partners for example, the medical respite units receive referrals from hospitals and other health care providers.
Tenant selection reflects Catholic Charities commitment to housing very low-income people and those who are long-term homeless, at risk of long-term homelessness and have barriers to housing including disabilities, poor rental or credit histories, and criminal histories. Catholic Charities housing programs are low barrier and entry tolerant of rental history and criminal backgrounds.
