Doorways of Northwest Florida operates as the Lead Agency and centralized coordinated entry access point for the Northwest Florida Continuum of Care (CoC).  We facilitate understanding and distribution of federal and state funding available to providers in the community that are working to end homelessness in Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, and Washington counties.

We are committed to ending and preventing homelessness through coordinated community efforts with specific approaches directed toward securing housing for those who are experiencing homelessness, those at high risk of homelessness, and those earning less than 50% annual median income. We serve diverse populations including Veterans, those chronically homeless, families, and youth.

Our services include assessments for rental & mortgage assistance, rental & utility deposits, past due rent & utilities, and case management. We also make referrals for mainstream benefits, employment assistance, medical & mental health, medical insurance, and COVID-19 testing & vaccine resources.
