Homeless Management Information System (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.

The Department of Public social Services Homeless Programs Unit (DPSS - HPU) is the HUD grantee responsible for administering HMIS for the County of Riverside Continuum of Care and the HMIS Lead Organization.  DPSS has the "responsibility to establish, support and manage HMIS in a manner that will meet HUD's standards for data quality, privacy, security and other requirements for organizations participating in HMIS".
