Lee County Human and Veteran Services provides a Coordinated Entry system by calling 239-533-7996. Coordinated Entry is a system designed to match people experiencing homelessness to available housing, shelter, and services. The system prioritizes those who are most in need of assistance. Lee County’s Coordinated Entry system employs a “Housing First” model that prioritizes individuals and families facing the highest vulnerability and needs for permanent, supportive housing. The Lee County Homeless Coalition does not have shelter beds. United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee Counties has a robust referral system for social service, please dial 211 from your phone and you will be connected to a person that will be able to further assist you.
