Password Expirations

Some of you may have noticed that your password expired earlier than expected. This occurred due to  the Heartbleed bug that struck many SSL platforms used to manage SSL connections. Bowman installed a patch and then to ensure the security and integrity of ServicePoint, we asked them to expire everyone’s passwords.

Please reset your password with a brand new one to be safe.

PS. If you haven’t heard about this nasty bug and you’re curious, it’s all over news websites. Many systems were affected such as Google, Yahoo, Facebook, etc.

Milwaukee CoC - Important Dates & Notes

The Milwaukee CoC funded agencies are set to hold their APR peer review work group on Wednesday April 16, 2014 at 10am at Hillside Family Center 1452 N. 7th Street. Please bring 5 copies of your APR to share with the group.

Agency Score Cards will be handed out for all Milwaukee Agencies on 4/16 or before. Since this data directly affects how the PIT numbers are reported, all corrections are due into the system by May 1, 2014! Results from the Score Cards and Quarterly APR will be sent to the Funding Opportunities and Provider Advisory groups.

City ESG funded agencies - New trainings are in the works for upcoming reporting requirements. Please Note: Shelters that receive City ESG funds, MUST be using ShelterPoint! If you are not, you will have to go back to January 2014 and input client data.

If you would like to participate in the HMIS work group, please contact Nancy and she will add you the email list.

Please refrain from using "Don't Know" as an answer to an already populated field. It is a timely project to correct those fields. We appreciate your assistance!

Please make sure you have fulfilled your training requirements. Please refer to the HMIS user
agreement for more details.
