Please call 2-1-1 for information and services on homelessness near you.


The Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is a local information technology system that is used by homeless service providers to collect confidential client-level data including demographics, history of homelessness and services accessed, and service need.

The program was developed in response to a mandate by Congress requiring states to collect data in order to receive funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to address homelessness.

In Sacramento and Yolo counties, HMIS is managed by Sacramento Steps Forward.
