"To end homelessness, a community must know the scope of the problem, the characteristics of those who find themselves homeless, and understand what is working in their community and what is not. Solid data enables a community to work confidently towards their goals as they measure outputs, outcomes, and impacts."
- US Dept of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), May 2014
Works With Any HMIS
HMIS vendors are required by HUD to be able to produce data in the current HUD CSV Data Exchange Format. HomelessData receives data in this format and can produce all of the HUD reports. It is that simple. Details for vendors on can be found here.
HUD Reporting & More
All of the reports related to homelessness that are required by HUD for regions, and for the projects within them, can be produced in HomelessData. The built-in data quality monitoring tools help ensure the reports are accurate.
The System Performance Measures are instrumental tools for measuring the efficacy of local initiatives to end homelessness. These, combined with tools to support resource allocation strategies, help to maximize the impact of limited community resources.
