What is HMIS?
The mission of the Homeless Missourian’s Information System (HMIS) is to provide the tools necessary for agencies to not only understand their data, but to leverage their information to improve homelessness services provided to their clients. We do this through data sharing and collaboration and by tracking outcome measurements.
The HMIS is an online database that stores information about individuals and families who seek housing and homeless prevention services. This information includes individual client demographics (e.g., age, education, gender) and household information (e.g., medical, income, housing status). This information can then be aggregated to look at the size, characteristics and needs of the homeless population. For more detailed information, please view the “About HMIS” page.
