Creating Equity Based Coordinated Entry System Strategies

Data demonstrates over-representation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth and youth of color in homeless systems, which we’ve known for a long time. In collaboration with Marc Dones of National Innovation Service (NIS), the CELC community dug into coordinated entry systems through an equity lens - understanding what it means to center equity as opposed to equity being an analytic afterthought. This call focused on the why and how to build equity-based systems, including tracking and collecting data around sexual orientation, gender identity and racial identity to understand how systems are working for LGTBQ youth and youth of color, and how to be actionable and accountable to young people.
