Prior to June 2016, DESC managed applicants for our Supportive Housing projects by prioritizing them according to the DESC Vulnerability Assessment Tool (VAT) score. Starting in June 2016, DESC will no longer be accepting referrals for Vulnerability Assessment interviews. All housing referrals to DESC will be centralized through King County's Coordinated Entry system as part of King County's implementation of Coordinated Entry for All (CEA).
For information and updates about the King County's transition to Coordinated Entry for All system, please visit the following external sites:
On a limited capacity, DESC will continue to provide VAT training for local service providers interested in using the VAT for their own purposes. For more information please click here or contact Maria Jacinto at firstname.lastname@example.org.
