Coordinated Entry

Westchester County Coordinated Entry Program (WCCEP) provides universal services to all people who are experiencing homelessness throughout Westchester County. Being homeless means you are:

  • Living and sleeping outside or in places not meant for human habitation

  • Fleeing or attempting to flee domestic violence

  • Staying in an emergency shelter or transitional housing, or

  • Exiting an institution where you stayed for up to 90 days and were homeless before entering that institution
