Youth Collaboratory, in partnership with A Way Home America (AWHA) and other national partners, convened 25 communities over 3 years through the Coordinated Entry Learning Collaborative (CELC) to explore how to design, implement, and maintain a coordinated community response to youth homelessness.

The goals of the CELC were to:

  • Move communities towards stronger coordinated responses to addressing youth homelessness at the local level 
  • Increase data collection and utilize data to refine and improve efforts
  • Contribute to the national conversation by capturing and sharing effective practices
  • Facilitating peer learning relationships

Participating Communities

Communities participating in the CELC are from across the U.S. The map and list of communities that most recently participated in the CELC can be found below:

Data Dashboard

AWHA helped each CELC community, and the broader movement, to measure progress on effectively ending youth homelessness in an easy-to-understand visual. 


The resources shared through the modules offer communities, multidisciplinary professionals, policy makers, and advocates insights into the conversations these communities had as they explored topics such as: diversion and navigation strategies; by name lists and prioritization, creating inclusive spaces and policies, and data sharing to support coordinated entry systems. 
Each module topic may contain documents such as:

  • A video recording of web-based meetings
  • Presentation slide decks
  • Meeting summary notes
  • Supporting documents, tools, and resources
