Hear from Your Peer: The Who, What, When, Where, and How of Centralized Intake

This webinar will provide an overview of an intake, screening, assessment, and referral process known as centralized, or central, intake. Centralized Intake is typically used in communities that have multiple programs offered within the same service area, serving similar focus populations. Three Healthy Start programs will share how they are using and/or developing centralized intake systems to help identify, screen, and assess families in an effort to enroll them in the program that is best suited for their specific situation and needs. Grantees representing various phases of development and implementation will share their role within the centralized intake system, as well as successes, challenges, and lessons learned.
