What is CAA?
Coordinated Access and Assessment is a single program for people experiencing homelessness to access housing services and other system referrals. It is a system-wide program designed to meet the needs of the most vulnerable first by triaging. It creates a more efficient homeless serving system by:
Helping people move through the system faster by reducing the amount of time people spend moving from program to program before finding the right match
Reducing new entries into homelessness by consistently offering prevention and diversion resources up front.
Improving data collection and quality providing accurate information on what kind of assistance consumers need.
