Homeless Management Information System (HMIS)
The Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is a locally administered, electronic data collection system that allows homeless service providers to record client information and track services provided.
The state of Oregon has instituted ServicePoint to be the platform for this data collection. The mission of HMIS is to be an integrated network of homeless, prevention and other service providers that use a central database to collect, track and report uniform information on client needs and services. This system not only meets Federal and State requirements, but also enhances service planning and delivery. Communities can use this information to determine how services are being utilized, identify gaps in the local service continuum and develop outcome measurements.
For more information on HMIS/ServicePoint, please contact Katie Jordan, HMIS Specialist, Katiej@neighborimpact.org.
