Safe housing is one of the most basic needs, right next to food, water and clothing.But, for many vulnerable populations, like survivors of abuse, recovering addicts, and ex-prisoners, providing transitional and emergency housing often requires more than just four walls and a roof. Your work might start with providing shelter, but to be successful, transitional housing programs need secure and sustainable funding so they can provide both beds and program support.
In the United States, the federal US Interagency Council on Homelessness has successfully pushed for a focus on goal-setting and data-driven strategies to end homelessness. Now, most federal and private grants for housing assistance require the implementation of a Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), an 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.�
Social Services Technology Solutions can provide the transitional housing location and resource provision as required by the government to help people become independent.
