Colorado Coalition for the Homeless (CCH) is the implementing organization for the Homeless Mangement Information System (HMIS), under the direction of the Metro Denver Homeless Initiative (MDHI) Continuum of Care (CoC). HMIS utilizes a computerized data collection tool designed to capture client-level information over a period of time. HMIS collects information on the characteristics and service needs of persons experiencing homelessness, or who are at risk of becoming homeless. It incorporates a set of policies and procedures around client confidentiality, data collection, computer entry, and reporting. HMIS is designed to aggregate client-level data to generate unduplicated counts of clients served in the community.
It is our goal to use HMIS to benefit the community by:

— Streamlining referrals, intakes, and assessments of cases
— Increasing coordination of case management between workers
— Assisting with benefits access eligibility
— Evaluating case progress and outcomes
— Increasing agency efficiency in internal and external coordination of services
— Accurately reporting to agency funders, boards, and stakeholders
— Increasing community understanding of homelessness
— Reducing service gaps within the community
— Developing better policies to prevent and minimize homelessness in the community
— Meeting federal reporting requirements
