Homeless Management Information System

HMIS is a computerized data collection application designed to capture client-level information on characteristics and service needs of homeless persons and persons in need of assistance. HOTHC uses HMIS to track services provided to homeless individuals in the community.

HOTHC utilizes HMIS to:
  •  Enhance interagency coordination
  • Determine scope of homelessness
  • Optimize usage of resources
  • Provide more effective and streamlined referrals
  • Collect data for reporting and grant/funding compliance

If your agency would like to participate in HMIS, please contact Nicole at 254-750-5777 or at nicolew@wacotx.gov.
