Analysis of Performance
- This metric will be updated starting in 2021.
- All data is being migrated into the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS).
- The migration to the new HMIS will be finalized by the end of 2020 and will provide more robust data than the previous dashboard.
In partnership with Homeward 2020 and their data dashboard, this metric allows us to compare the number of people entering homelessness (actual result) versus the number of people exiting homelessness (target result) each quarter. Our goal is to make homelessness rare, short-lived and non-recurring. Homeward2020 Housing First Initiative Dashboard: http://www.homeward2020.org/data-dashboard/
Why Is This Important?
This is important because the data helps us understand who is experiencing homelessness and to deliver efficient services from our response system. It helps us understand unique categories of people in the system, know who is eligible for existing resources, and find opportunities for targeted services to fill gaps.
City Organization Impact on Performance
Medium – The City Organization has a medium impact on the performance of this metric due to the amount of resources committed to homelessness initiatives in general, and the Housing First Initiative specifically.
No applicable benchmarks—data and dashboard specific to Fort Collins, although we may set our own benchmarks in the future.
