SARAH staff maintains the following Standing Committees of the Board of Directors:
Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) Advisory Committee
Point-in-Time Count Committee
Coordinated Entry Advisory Committee
Please, visit the SARAH Calendar to view dates of upcoming committee meetings. If you would like more information, email email@example.com.
The HMIS Advisory Committee is responsible for reviewing new policies, procedures, customization, and plans for the local Homeless Management Information System. Representatives on the HMIS Advisory Committee need Executive Director approval from their agency and must be a decision-maker for the agency they represent. There will still be other opportunities for HMIS users to provide input, but this group is expected to represent local leadership with a vested interest in the HMIS as we make decisions about the future of the program.
