The Homeless Alliance of WNY publishes reports of homelessness in the five-county region that we serve. The information is from HMIS, departments of social services, and providers. HMIS serves as the primary data source 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. This summary zeroes in on Erie County.
If you have any questions about the annual report, please contact Christine Slocum, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Homeless Alliance of Western New York is the lead agency for both the Continuum of Care (CoC) and the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) in Buffalo, Niagara Falls, Erie, Niagara, Genesee, Wyoming and Orleans Counties. While they do not offer direct services their work fosters collaboration in the community to implement best-practice models ensuring everyone has a home. They are the data nerds of the WNY homelessness alleviation community, offering technical assistance and a bird's eye view.
