Homeless Management Information System
“Being homeless is not job specific. It doesn’t spare gender, age, race or ethnicity. It is equal opportunity misery. ” (Quote courtesy of the Milwaukee Guest House website)
Since 2001, 2-1-1 Brevard has served as the lead agency for the county’s Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). Funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the HMIS allows member providers of supportive services to homeless individuals and families to manage information for services provided and also contains case management tools for case managers. The HMIS facilitates the collection of data and generate aggregate reporting of information about the homeless population, demographics, needs and services provided throughout our community.
This platform was also used as the primary case management system for the area’s long term recovery services after the 2004 hurricane season.
HUD awaits approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the revised HMIS Data Standards.
Privacy/Security, Intake and Program Management Classes are held the third Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays of each month.
