FAQ - Coordinated Entry (CE) Process: A Resource for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Victim Service Providers
This FAQ tool has been developed in response to questions the Consortium has received from DV/SA advocates who are interested in learning more about the Homeless Continuum of Care coordinated entry (CE) requirements and process to promote CE access and safe housing options for survivors. The FAQ draws from regulations and other guidance from HUD and USICH and offers strategies and resources for DV/SA providers who want to contribute to the creation and implementation of the CE process in their communities.
Transgender and non-transgender survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) share the same vital need for safety, shelter, and support services. All trans individuals who have experienced IPV deserve and are entitled to the same level of support and services that other trans and non-trans individuals can access. Although the majority of barriers all gender vectors of trans people face are similar, there are some challenges to shelter access, system structures, and trans-specific issues that are unique to individuals on the trans-feminine spectrum, trans-masculine spectrum, and to those who are androgynous or gender non-conforming. To better discuss the unique challenges and solutions for these populations, this document focuses on trans women and references separate tandem documents that concentrate on trans men and gender non- conforming individuals who are seeking shelter. The recommendations within this document apply to the majority of trans women, however, there may be unique variables for immigrant1 and non-English-speaking trans women, as well as for trans women of color, who may have additional layers of intersectional barriers.
