Homeless Management Information System (HMIS)
Every day, homeless service and housing providers in Metro Denver enter client-level data into a secure database called HMIS. This data is used to help deliver effective services and monitor the effectiveness of the overall homelessness system. HMIS provides critical data to help inform decisions about homelessness policy and funding decisions.
MDHI appreciates its partnership with Colorado Coalition for the Homeless (CCH). CCH is the HMIS Lead Agency, designated by the MDHI board, to lead the implementation of the regional HMIS. The HMIS team at CCH helps define policies and procedures around client confidentiality, data collection, and reporting, and trains new and existing users on how to navigate the system.
Much more information about HMIS can be found at the Colorado HMIS website.
