We are constantly working to make our site accessible to everyone we can. This site contains tags for use with screen readers. It was tested with NVDA, but there are many others. A link to NV Access for NVDA is provided as well as to the American Foundation for the Blind which lists many products to assist anyone with a visual disability. The Commission on Homelessness and Housing for Volusia & Flagler Counties does not endorse or warrant any particular products, rather these links are provided for convenience.

If you run into any issues please contact us so that we may be able to address the issues.

     HUD and the Department of Children and Families (DCF) mandate that communities receiving funds from the McKinney-Vento Homelessness Act for use in Supportive Housing Programs, Shelter Plus Care, Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and other homeless housing and prevention programs must report their services using HMIS.

     For our Continuum of Care (FL-504CoC), we currently have 13 agencies reporting on over 100 homeless and homelessness-prevention housing and services programs throughout Volusia and Flagler Counties. 


Who Uses HMIS?

What is HMIS?

     HMIS is a case management database that tracks clients being serviced by direct service-providing agencies. The data collected by HMIS serves multiple functions, most notably:

  • Data collection that gives us a better understanding of the needs of the homeless in a given area in the United States;
  • Acts as a case-management tool by allowing clients, their service histories, and rehabilitation progress to be monitored;
  • Generates data used in various reports to local governments, such as Consolidated Plans, Governor's Office, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and the Annual Assessment Report provided to the United Stated Congress; and
  • Generates data used for various grants and funding competitions, such as HUD's Continuum of Care Competition.
