Prioritizing Survivor Safety and Confidentiality Within Coordinated Entry Systems

Preparing Staff and Engaging Partners

Key Points

  • Safety for survivors in the CE process requires an environment that is informed and prepared.

  • Engage community partners to create an effective and safe CES for survivors. Be ready to offer survivors connection to local DV/SA and culturally specific resources.

If you are in danger, please call 911, a local hotline, or the U.S. National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 and TTY 1-800-787-3224. Avoid using a computer that could be accessed by a person who may cause harm, and learn more technology safety tips.

Please note that the Safe Housing Alliance is not a direct service provider and does not provide individual counseling, crisis response, housing advocacy, or legal services. We have compiled a brief list of resources for survivors here.
