Homeless Management Information System

PA HMIS tracks and analyzes the characteristics and service needs of people at-risk or experiencing homelessness.

The more your community knows about a problem, the better equipped community partners are to maximize resources to prevent and resolve the problems at hand. That’s the idea behind the Pennsylvania Homeless Management Information System (PA HMIS) overseen by the Department of Community and Economic Development. This community-based software is designed to capture client-level information overtime on the characteristics and services needs of adults and children at-risk or experiencing homelessness.

The primary goal is to acquire hard data in order to understand the scope and dimensions of homelessness in order to address the problems more effectively. This benefits service providers and clients’ at-risk or experiencing homelessness and enables more efficient use of service through a coordinated entry process.
