Data-Informed Decision-Making

Data is a powerful tool to advance community efforts to end homelessness. We facilitate data collection, construct and improve HMIS, and negotiate agreements for cross-system data integration. Working closely with local agencies and system leaders, Homebase designs performance measurement systems with clear metrics and regular evaluation processes – connecting the dots from robust data to improved outcomes.

Our analytics transform raw data into actionable insights that drive policy and enhance understanding of homeless system gaps and needs. We promote data-informed decision-making, helping communities apply their data to planning and resource allocation.


We also help communities use their data for education and advocacy. We craft engaging reports that provide compelling narratives on need, program impact, and overall progress on homelessness.
