Service Connection

How it's used
To connect client with needed resources or arrange acceptance into an alternative sentencing court such as veterans court, drug court, mental health court, or job court.
Due to coordinated entry policies within the emergency shelter system, social workers cannot currently coordinate emergency shelter placement on a client's behalf. If client is in need of emergency shelter placement, they must contact the appropriate Coordinated Entry Agency based on their location.
