NAM is a part of Coordinated Access services via the Interfaith Homeless Network (IHN) program and can assess homeless individuals within its service area to assist them in accessing the help they need.
Coordinated Access is a system-wide assessment and placement process of The Way Home, a program which helps determine the best housing option for every homeless individual. The Coalition for the Homeless of Houston/Harris County maintains two resource guides of shelters, drop-in centers, and other providers participating in Coordinated Access available to homeless individuals:
The Digital Help Card – a robust directory of services to support homeless or newly housed individuals. This directory is available online only.
The Street Guide – printable resource for use by individuals in crisis, living on the streets or in shelters. The Street Guide can efficiently direct individuals to programs that can connect them with housing and help end their homelessness.
If you or someone you know needs housing, please contact NAM’s Coordinated Access Assessor, Marcus Ferdinand at (281) 885-4567 or to schedule an appointment.
You may also contact the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Homeless Outreach Team (H.O.T.) for assistance. The H.O.T. Team is also part of Coordinated Access, partnering with established homeless assistance groups to connect the homeless population to supportive community resources.
