HMIS

The Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) provides homeless service providers throughout San Diego County with a regional collaborative approach to data collection and client management. Our HMIS is managed through “ServicePoint” (by Bowman Systems), a web-based application empowering human services providers, agencies, coalitions, and communities to manage real-time client and services data. The RTFH supports users with help desk, ongoing training, and customization. For more information, please contact us.
