About the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS)

Since 2004, communities across Connecticut have been entering data into the CT Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). Since that time, this statewide database has collected client demographic, service usage and length of stay information on over 27,000 unduplicated clients, the result of hard work by staff in CT's emergency shelters and transitional living programs.

Beginning in 2008, CT HMIS data will be used to provide invaluable information on homelessness in our state, and analysis of the effectiveness of current efforts to prevent and end homelessness. As the system continues to grow, and data quality continues to improve, our data will become more reliable and the uses more diverse.
