A

Yes - While victim service providers are prohibited from entering personally identifying information into HMIS, HUD is encouraging CoCs to work with their victim services providers to establish either a process for their participation in the CoC’s coordinated entry process or establish their own coordinated entry process outside of the HMIS. It is important that this process provides access to all available housing and services regardless of whether the individual or family presents for intake at a victim-specific access point or a mainstream homeless service access point.
