    Built In Quality Controls

    HUD has placed an increased emphasis on System Performance Measures and has stated that "A true understanding can only be gained if comprehensive, high quality data is collected."

    HomelessData.com has built in data quality monitoring tools which help to ensure that the facts and figures being reported are both accurate and meaningful.

    A Roof Over Every Head

    HomelessData enables communities to gather information on the people in their area experiencing homelessness as well as quantify the efforts being made to help them. This information is crucial for improving our collective understanding of the practices that are making the most significant impact.

    Data-Driven Decision Making

    The tools in HomelessData can be used to improve operations, shape public policy, and help community stakeholders work more effectively together to respond to homelessness.

"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

    Operational and reporting requirements vary from non-profit to non-profit. HomelessData is the "glue" that allows providers to use what works best for them.  Regional reports, by-name lists, and performance measures can all be produced outside of HMIS.

  • 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.  

  • Performance Measurement

    Community resources should be allocated in a manner that achieves the greatest potential impact.  The Performance Measurement tools provide guidance to those who have to make the tough decisions whenever there are limited resources.
