FrontLine Services
Central Intake; Homeless Prevention and Diversion:
    Coordinated Intake and Assessment Services

    In collaboration with the Cleveland Mediation Center, FrontLine Service Coordinated Intake & Assessment staff work closely with the residential staff at 2100 Lakeside Men’s shelter and at the Norma Herr Women’s Center shelter (NHWC). Every person and/or family seeking shelter is assessed by Intake staff to determine if an immediate intervention might prevent the episode of homelessness. Interventions include family reunification, short term rental assistance, landlord-tenant mediation, and/or community referrals. If a shelter stay cannot be prevented, the family or individual is assessed to determine needs for ongoing services to address the current housing crisis and quickly get the family or individual in shelter and back to permanent housing. Central/Coordinated Intake refers those in need of shelter placement to an emergency shelter in Cuyahoga County. Central Intake operates Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. and is located at 1736 Superior Avenue, 2nd Floor.  If a single person needs shelter after 8:00 p.m. or on the weekend they should go directoly to 2100 Men’s Shelter or Norma Herr Women’s Center for a bed.  If a family requires shelter after 8:00 p.m. or on the weekends they should call 211.  The family will be linked to on-call staff.
