HMIS or the Homeless Management Information System is a database that collects and reports client-level information about persons who access the homeless service system. HMIS is an online database used by homeless and at-risk service providers.

What HMIS does:

  • Provides an unduplicated count of clients served
  • Tracks services used by homeless persons
  • Captures information from multiple agencies
  • Tracks service usage over time
  • Provides summary information about service usage and clients
  • Gauges community progress towards ending homelessness

One Step uses HMIS to help our community get funding to help those in need, validate the information we receive from applicants, and keep track of who we serve and what services they received.
