Homeless-SCC is the product of a wide ranging partnership between government, nonprofits, churches, and the private sector.

The work grew out of a widespread recognition that the system serving the county’s homeless is complex and constantly changing. Agency frontline staff needed a more efficient way to get accurate and up to date information on services available. Caseworkers would be helped with a more established system for making referrals, especially around shelter bed reservations. Government and philanthropic leaders needed a better overview of how all the pieces interacted.

In late 2011, the White House announced that Homeless-SCC as a national award winner of the Apps for Communities contest that sought innovative ways to use data to serve community needs.

Key partners on the project include:

Homeless SCC is especially grateful for The River Church Community who funded this project entirely as a gift to the community.

Homeless SCC serves as a complement to existing tools such as HMIS, 211.org, and HelpSCC and is indebted to their pioneering work.
