Coordinated Entry System (CES) is a process developed to ensure that all people experiencing a housing crisis have fair and equal access. The CES team will quickly identify, assess, refer, and connect households to resources based on their strengths and needs. Through this process, people experiencing homelessness can access the crisis response system, in a streamlined way by contacting one telephone number.
CES number is 703-792-3366.
CES hours of operation are 7 days a week 9:00am-9:00pm
