AFFORDABLE HOUSING BREAKFAST FORUM
“Examining the Front Door of the Homeless
March 9, 2017 – 7:30am-9:00am
Weyerhaeuser Room, 4th Floor, Everett Station
To date, analysis of homelessness in Snohomish County has focused primarily on what happens to persons while they are enrolled in homeless housing programs. While data gathered during those enrollments has a lot to tell us, it cannot tell us the size of the problem. This presentation will showcase a publicly available data dashboard designed to look at the front door of the homeless housing system and answer key questions about how many people are trying to access housing and what happens after a household contacts coordinated entry.
Jess Jorstad is the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) Lead for the Everett/Snohomish County CoC. She draws on her 10-year background in homeless housing and experience in administering CoC projects and development of performance benchmarks as she builds visualizations to easily consume large quantities of data. These dynamic visualizations aid the investigation of system trends, program performance, and overall data quality by highlighting every corner of the HMIS dataset.
When not wrangling unruly data, she administers the HMIS, including implementing HUD standards and updates. She oversees the Coordinated Entry system data structure, and supports the Data Committee as they provide recommendations to the CoC Board to drive system change toward ending homelessness.
