Homeless Management
Information System (HMIS)

The Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is a locally administered, electronic database that stores person-level information about individuals who access the homeless service system.

HMIS Data Sources and Reports

Data is important. Good Data helps a community understand its performance and determine if the right combination of strategies and resources have been deployed. Our CoC maintains a variety of data sources and reports, which are submitted to the HUD Homelessness Data Exchange or used for local planning and performance evaluation purposes. More information about these reports, as well as links to view or download these reports are located at Will County CoC Data.

A data quality plan is a community-level document that facilitates the ability of the CoC to achieve statistically valid and reliable data. In short, a data quality plan sets expectations for both the community and the end users to capture reliable and valid data on persons accessing the homeless assistance system.

The Will County Continuum of Care HMIS Data Quality Plan was developed by the HMIS Lead Agency with input from community stakeholders and was formally adopted by the CoC September 11, 2017.

Here’s Our Plan:
