A Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is a local information technology system used to collect client-level data and data on the provision of housing and services to homeless individuals and families and persons at risk of homelessness. Each Continuum of Care (CoC) is responsible for selecting an HMIS software solution that complies with HUD’s data collection, management, and reporting standards.

HMIS data is used for federal reporting, including Annual Performance Reports, the Point-in-Time Count, Longitudinal Systems Analysis, and System Performance Measures.

Haven for Hope is the HMIS Lead Agency for the TX-500 Continuum of Care.
