We believe every Broward County resident deserves a place to call home, and we are doing our part to make this a reality. Through collaboration with a network of community-based organizations, advocates, residents, and local businesses, HIP is addressing homelessness at its root causes and forging a new path for individuals and families experiencing homelessness. We invite you to learn more about HIP's positive impact and consider joining us in our efforts to make homelessness in Broward County a thing of the past.
The Broward County Homeless Continuum of Care has two interactive dashboards that provide real-time data about the state of homelessness in Broward County and the work the HCoC is doing to bring homelessness to an end through its various programs and supportive services. Using aggregated data pulled directly from
Broward County's Homeless Information Management Systems (HMIS), these dashboards are easy to navigate and provide a clear, simplistic visualization of HCoC data
that is easily digestible for stakeholders and the public at large. Available data points include the total number of client served in a given time period, demographic information of clients served including gender, age, and ethnic data, and data quality indicators.
