WHAT IS HMIS?

Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is a community-wide online database used by agencies that provide services to persons experiencing homelessness. Collected information provides numerous benefits to both the participating agencies and the clients served. The confidentiality of client data is very important and strict measures are taken to ensure the safety of AHMIS records.
