Missoula Coordinated Entry System (MCES)

Navigating a housing emergency? Call 406-728-1809 or 406-549-Hope for assistance.  MCES logo

In alignment with Missoula’s 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness, members of the Missoula At-Risk Housing Coalition (ARHC) implemented new strategies in the Coordinated Entry System in June of 2017.This system aims to prevent and divert households from entering the houseless system in Missoula, reduce duplication of services, provide data to improve outcomes, and prioritize limited housing resources. Coordinated Entry not only saves lives, but it saves our community money as well.
