The Homeless Alliance of Western New York has released the 2016 Homeless Alliance Annual Report.
The information in the annual report is from HMIS, departments of social services, and providers. HMIS serves as the primary data source, though three counties contribute annual client-level demographic data to HAWNY and nearly all agencies in the five-county area who are not on HMIS provide aggregate counts. Increased coverage of HMIS has led to an improved understanding of homelessness in Western New York.
If you have any questions about the annual report, please contact Christine Slocum.
