This video contains most but not all of the same information in this article. 



Enrolling Clients into a Project

Search for the client, click on the Edit icon and click on the Programs tab: 



On the Programs page, you will see two section: 

1. Program History

2. Program: Available




In this example, the Programs History section is blank because this test client has not been enrolled in any programs before. When you are working with clients who have previously been enrolled in a program, you will see any previous enrollments the client has had in any program in the Orange County CoC. Next to each previous program enrollment will either be an Exit Date if the client is exited, or the word  in green if the client is still enrolled in that program.


In the Programs: Available section, you will see a list of programs you are able to enroll your client into. You can click on the down arrow nest to the name of any program to expand the view and enroll your clients.


The following program information is shown in the Programs Available Section: 


  • Program Description: A description of the program you have selected. This section will only be visible if your agency has provided a Program Description to 211OC.
  • Occupancy: Shows the number of beds/units available. This section will only be visible if the program you have selected has a program type that requires bed inventory. Bed inventory information is based on the latest HIC.
  • Funding Source: Describes the funding sources associated with the program you have selected.
  • Availability: Describes any availability restrictions on the program you have selected.
  • Housing Availability: Shows the number of beds and units available for each household type.
  • Include Group Members: Click the switch next to the name of each household member you would like to enroll.
  • Enroll Button: Clicking this button enrolls the selected clients into the program you have selected.



After clicking Enroll, you will be taken to the Program Enrollment page for your original client. This page will present program specific data elements necessary to complete enrollment. Fill out each data element and click Save.

(Note: If you are enrolling other household/family members, there will be a Save and Next button. Selecting this will enroll the current member, and automatically take you to the correct program enrollment screen for the next member.)
