How would you decide who gets beds if you fill up?

We will be implementing the Coordinated Entry system as a state in January of 2018.  All providers who participate in coordinated entry will be working from a prioritization chart developed and agreed upon by the Statewide Homeless Council. Guests will be prioritized for services not just at our new facility, but around the state based upon where they fall on this chart.
