Welcome to the Colorado HMIS website
The Colorado State Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) supports both the MDHI and BOS Continuum of Care (CoC) for the state of Colorado. Colorado Coalition for the Homeless (CCH) is the lead agency for both CoC. The seven Denver metro counties, under the direction of the Metropolitan Denver Homeless Initiative (MDHI) along with the BOS counties collects data about homeless clients to uncover characteristics and causes of homelessness. Homeless service providers in the Denver metro area as well as rural counties across the state, such as emergency shelters, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing programs, collect information about their clients in order to get accurate counts of homeless clients and the services they need. With a strategic collective effort across the state, we can better understand and focus our resources towards preventing and ending homelessness.
If you are a Homeless provider, or an at risk of homelessness provider, and you want to implement HMIS at your site please feel free to contact us at:
