What We Do

Homeless Management Information System (HMIS)

HMIS is a technology system used to collect client-level data and data on the provision of housing and services to homeless individuals and families at risk of homelessness.

Coordinated Entry Process

The goals for coordinated entry processes are that assistance be allocated as effectively as possible and that it be easily accessible no matter where, or how, people present.

Continuum of Care Completion

A comprehensive collaborative application process that consolidates community-wide information into a single application to HUD for homelessness assistance funding.

Point-in-Time & Housing Inventory Counts

A count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons and housing available to them on a single night during the last ten days of January each year.

Community Partnership

Our coalition is comprised of representatives of organizations from nonprofit homeless providers, government stakeholders, public housing agencies, healthcare providers, law enforcement, educational institutions, and formerly homeless and homeless persons. Our planning, coordination and advocacy alliance develops recommendations for programs and services to fill the need across a seven-county region.
