Missouri Balance of State Thoroughness of Reach

The Homeless Missourians Information System (HMIS) Project examined the thoroughness of reach within the Missouri Balance of State (BoS) Continuum of Care (CoC). Thoroughness of reach is one of six performance indicators under the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act, requiring each CoC to examine how effective their homeless service delivery system is in reaching those who are experiencing homelessness.

Sheltered Point-in-Time Count (PITC) Statistical Reports

ICA’s Missouri HMIS Project coordinates the sheltered portion of the Point-in-Time Count for the Missouri Balance of State CoC and the Jasper/Newton CoC while the Missouri Housing Development Commission (MHDC) leads the unsheltered count for the Missouri Balance of State CoC. The combined sheltered and unsheltered reports for the Missouri Balance of State CoC can be accessed on the Governor’s Committee to End Homelessness (GCEH) website: www.mo-ich.org. ICA also publishes a sheltered statistical report for the the Balance of State and Jasper/Newton CoCs. Listed below are the most current sheltered statistical reports for these two continua.
