Homeless Management Information System

Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is a web-based software application. It serves as the primary database for collecting critical data on households that are served by projects intended to prevent and end homelessness.

It collects and reports on client-level information about who clients are, including:

  • when they were served
  • what their circumstances were when they entered a project
  • whether they changed
  • what services were provided

HMIS allows for increased service efficiency for individuals and families experiencing homelessness as well as provide a systemwide picture of homelessness in Nashville. The efficiency of the system depends in community-wide participation.
