“Examining the Front Door of the Homeless Housing System”

March 9, 2017


On March 9, 2017, the Housing Consortium of Everett and Snohomish County hosted an affordable housing breakfast sponsored by JP Morgan and Chase. Over 100 people enjoyed breakfast, networking, and hearing Jess Jorstad, Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) Lead for the Everett/Snohomish County CoC, speak. Drawing on her 10-year background in homeless housing and experience in administering CoC projects, Jess gave a dynamic presentation about a publicly available data dashboard designed to look at the front door of the homeless housing system, answered key questions about how many people are trying to access housing, and explained what happens after a household contacts coordinated entry.
