Welcome to our home on the web...


Homeless in Utica or Rome
or in Oneida or Madison County?


There is a Coordinated Entry System for homeless services in our region that is designed to support persons and families who wish to move into permanent housing.

This Coordinated Entry System is a community-wide process that includes all homeless providers working together to quickly move people into available housing options.  It includes a common assessment that is conducted at all HUD-funded shelters and at other locations to inform the selection of the most appropriate permanent housing option to meet your needs.

Our Continuum of Care (CoC) has a process that ensures that:

  1. The highest need, most vulnerable households in the community are prioritized for services.
  2. There are privacy protections in place for all participants.
  3. There is no discrimination based on race, color, ethnicity, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, criminal background, family or marital status.
