Chicago's Dashboard to End Homelessness

Chicago's Dashboard to End Homelessness

Our Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) team created Chicago's Dashboard to End Homelessness to empower the housing and homeless services system to assess their progress and take action to prevent and end homelessness in Chicago. This dashboard harnesses data from HMIS to transparently depict how people experiencing homelessness access services and move to housing. The dashboard will be updated on a weekly basis to allow for real-time analysis and for the community to act on data to improve strategies that prevent and end homelessness. 

Dashboard Update for January 23, 2018:
We wanted to notify dashboard viewers of a factor that prompted a significant decrease in the One List (the number of individuals and households experiencing homelessness) when the dashboard was updated on January 23. We have selected to exclude a program that responds to shelter requests and transports people to shelter from the One List. We found that a number of the participants served by this outreach project were not engaging with the homeless system via shelter, transitional housing, outreach or services only projects. This exclusion prompted the One List to decrease by 1,562. Without the omission of this program, the One List would have decreased by 51.
