In order to comply with a federal mandate to collect certain data about homeless individuals, homeless services agencies in Maricopa County collaborated to initiate a Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). For three years, Lodestar provided the lead private sector grant to secure more than $1,000,000 of federal funding for the project. Although the original purpose of HMIS was to relay unduplicated data to the federal government, the participating agencies also use the nationally-honored system to more effectively deliver services by sharing information and tracking clients.
