Homeless Management Information System (HMIS)

The Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is a secure encrypted on-line database system that stores information about individuals who access homeless services in Austin & Travis County. Our HMIS captures client-level information over time, allowing agencies and communities to assess the characteristics and service needs of individuals and families experiencing homelessness. This information is then provided in unduplicated and aggregate form, stripped of any Protected Personal Information (PPI), to service agencies, the community, and to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
