WHAT IS HMIS?

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 is responsible for selecting an HMIS software solution that complies with HUD’s data collection, management, and reporting standards. TX-601 Fort Worth/Arlington/Tarrant Area has selected Social Solutions as the current provider of HMIS services.
