The AtlantiCare Foundation is leading this two-year project to build a healthier community by more effectively connecting Atlantic City’s community members who are homeless with available social services. By increasing data sharing among Atlantic City’s service providers through the wider implementation of Homeless Management Information Software (HMIS), the Foundation and its key partners in the AC Collaborative – a Care AC work group – are working to develop a Housing Priority List and reduce the duplication of services rendered to individuals who are homeless. The Collaborative is engaging all participating social service providers in the adoption of HMIS as a common client database through this project, enabling those individuals with the greatest need to receive services first, and clients with less urgent needs to navigate and receive services more effectively. In addition, this work is aligning service providers’ efforts to collectively address gaps in services and resources, identify trends and opportunities, and determine solutions.
